As I recall, when the Europeans stole the land away from the
Native Americans too, the NA fought back too, with any means possible.
Only difference is they used bows and arrows instead of explosive vests.
But does the weapon really matter, you are just as dead either way.
And yes, the NA killed women and children too.
The Palestinians are just trying to get their land back much as
the Native Americans were. Whether they succeed or fail like
the Native Americans did, only history will tell.
who says the rhine doesn't belong to germany? or britain should kick out the saxons? or that the muslims shoud leave jerusalem? borders get redrawn in war all the time, europe is a hodgepodge, so is the middle east. iraq is an artificial construction, as is switzerland. maybe china should give back its western provinces, or the arabs should all stuff themselves back into the arabian peninsula. or how about christians in lebanon who have been totally eradicated and marginalized over the last century.
the hatred, bigotry, and genocidal violence in palestine is a matter of their culture, not of anything else. they breed and teach hatred that at times exceeds all imaginable limits. the most democratic, free and pluralist society in the middle east is israel. muslims live better in israel, w/ more freedoms, and more say in their gov't then anywhere in the middle east. now maybe that doesn't live up to denmark standards, but its pretty hard to walk the line when every neighbor has wanted ur total annhilation for over half a century.
the whole talk about ethnic separation is just racism. proposed by racists and supported by racists. the goal here is liberal democracy, not some kind of ethnically clean country, even if genocidal maniacs are demanding it for themselves.
