  1. “Israel’s Original Sin, the Nakba.”

    No, Richard, the ‘Original Sin’ was when Palestinians began to massacre Jews in the 1920’s, 1930’s and 1940’s.

    Palestinians massacred Jews in Jerusalem, Hebron, Jaffa, Tiberius, Safed and Gush Etzion, etc.

    Hundreds of defenseless Jewish men, women and children were slaughtered with knives in their homes by their Palestinian neighbors.

    1. @ P Spot: It was equal opportunity mass violence. Jews massacred Palestinians and vice versa. But the impetus came from Jews settling in, and encroaching the indigenous Palestinian residents. If I were Palestinian and read Herzl and Ben Gurion at the time I’d feel very similar.

      For a people to defend their land is not a sin, original or otherwise. But for another people to attempt to usurp the indigenous population and expel them, that IS an Original Sin.

    2. @ P Spot: Pavel, Pavel, what do you take us for? Fools?

      4–7 April 1920– Nebi Musa Riots in and around the Old City of Jerusalem mark the first large-scale skirmish of the Arab-Israeli Conflict. Four Arabs and five Jews are killed…
      Labor Strike Revolt April 20 – October 12, 1936 197 Arabs killed and 823 wounded…
      November 14, 1937 10 Arabs killed by Irgun units launching attacks around Jerusalem, (“Black Sunday”)
      April 12, 1938 2 Arabs and 2 British policemen were killed by a bomb in a train in Haifa

      This is a partial listing of incidents in which Palestinians were killed by Jews.

      You are done in this thread. And if you continue to engage in Arabophobic terror porn, I will ban you.

  2. “It was equal opportunity mass violence ”

    No Richard, it was not.

    No Palestinians were massacred by the Jews in the 1920’s, or the 1930’s.

    Did Ben Gurion or Herzl ever advocate knifing to death innocent Arabs?

    No they did not, but, it was the Arabs of the 1920’s and 1930’s, acting at the behest of THEIR leaders, who stabbed to death innocent Jews.


    During the 1920’s, 1930’s, and, well into the 1940’s, local Arabs were selling their land to the Jews hand over fist, ‘cash on the barrel head’.
    Even the miserable Husseini clan was serrupticiously selling their landholdings to the Zionist Jews.

    How can you ‘encroach’ on land that you are legally purchasing?

    How Richard?

    How did the Zionists ‘encroach’ on land that they legally purchased from Arab landowners?

    Please explain that away.
