There have been tensions in the Middle East for thousands of years. Will we see peace there in your life time?

Original Post
There was peace in that region prior to 1948. Jewish presence created tension and conflict. I believe you know where I'm going with this ...

I think it's possible, but not in my lifetime. Things have been so one sided for such a long time, and so many people have lost their lives needless;y. Those children without parents today will always remember. The social inequalitites that were set up will also have a lingering effect, just as they do for our people here in the US.

Things may get better, but I think the tension will be there for a long, long, time to come. I concur with ArabianQueen.
Why should I have sympathy for Palestinians when Arabs have a violent, bloody, enslavement history against Black people, look at what Muslims are doing in the Sudan, taking land, destroying villages, enslaving people and forcing Islam on people WHO DON'T WANT IT by LAW and by VIOLENCE, killed more than 2 million in the last few years. Have 2 million Palestinians died in the last few years? The situation of Black people in Southern Sudan is a 1000 TIMES WORSE than what's happening to the Palestinian people.

It is the MONEY FROM ARAB GOVERNMENTS, that allow the Northern Sudanese Islamic government to commit the atrocities against the Sudanese people who do not want a thing to do with Islam, after and current bloody history of Muslims killing and enslaving Black people who can blame them.

I met a man and wife from Sudan who immigrated to the States, the past weekend who did mechanic work on my wife's car and what he tells me is appalling, I encouraged him to come to this site and tell his story how his brothers were killed, why his family are flung all over Africa because of the Muslims in his country. It is horrible what people do in the name of God!

Where is your sympathy for the Black people in Southern Sudan??? Oh I guess it's alright for Muslims to kill and maim innocent people since they are not Islamic. Do those kinds of actions have Allah's blessings?

You yourself said those Suicide Murderers are HEROES. If God does not view them as ZERO's then I would be disappointed in Him! It's OK to brainwash your own kids into killing innocent people hence the things going on in the Sudan is typical since the people suffering are not Muslim?

I was reading where the parents of Homicide bombers value their HOMES more than their own children, when the Israeli government started tearing down the homes of the parents of those murderers the parents started to stop their children from doing God's work, how can you expect any normal thinking person to respect that?

If your religious culture did not teach hatred against Jews, Infidels and Western Values, perhaps you would have more of balanced view, but as it is, you think your views are based in the wisdom of God, no one can deter you from your sentiments when you believe you are doing God's will. Allah hates Jews too, right?

You see, I'm not afraid to ask the OBVIOUS QUESTIONS, when will you muster the courage to do the same? It is so easy to be comforted in your own religious illusion because breaking that up can be devastating, because the most important aspect of your life can be phony. You will never challenge that will you?

Why should I have sympathy for anyone based on their history? The British, Japanese, Russian, German etc .... If I adopted your mentality I wouldn't care less if ANYONE in the world die. Oh and hey, why should I be sympathetic towards the September 11th issue? Isn't the "Big Bad America" the ones who supply Israel with money and weapons to harm MY people? Chechneya, Afghanistan, Iran, Iraq ... I could ridicule the death of 3000 people but fortunately JuneBug, I possess something called a heart and I'm not as prejudice as you. So what you have contemptment for white people too?

<>

I respect your opinion.

<>

So is it your wish that I die due to that fact? I'm not affiliated with the issue in Sudan but it seems to me that isn't your concern. You're only concern is that you couldn't care less if any Arab/Muslim died because they deserved it?
Was every German in Nazi Germany anti-semitic and worthy of death?
Let's not forget the Crusades and the Spanish Inquisition, it seems to me you have a firm belief that Islam is the only religion with flaws.

<>

Does it not occur to you that maybe many Arabs/Muslims might find this horrifying?

<>

No they don't. You clearly have more sympathy for the Black people in Sudan than any other people who are victims of iniquities due to the fact that you're black, so don't blame me for having more sympathy for people who pertain to me. But irrespective of that, the situation in Sudan is still horrific and has my empathy.

<>

Brainwash your kids? Ok, I have watched Fox News, CNN, NBC and I'm absolutely distraught at the fabrications they produce. People DON'T brainwash their children, if anything, they try and prevent them. The children are so horrfied, they're not blind. They do wake up and see Israeli incursion and are under the humuliation and terror of Israeli occupation. Suicide bombing wasn't introduced until after Israeli ILLEGAL occupation. Oppressors like the Israelis reap this and have no one to blame for themselves. And before your blind appraisal of Israel, Ariel Sharon hailed the apartheid in South Africa against YOUR black people.
Palestinian lives have become worthless. I was watching programme on BBC world about how when a psychologist asked children to draw pictures of what was on their minds, they all drew pictures of their dead relatives, Israeli soldiers in their tanks shooting and their refugee camps. This is what OUR children have to endure, as for me, I maybe only 15 years of age but I know true terrorism when I see it. What if YOUR children had to live like this?

I'm running out of time, I'll finish my response at a later date.

You're absolutely right about Israel's support of apartheid. The US govt even used Israel as a middle man to send money{ for arms } to aid in the oppression of black S. Africans.
Sure I knew that about apartheid but it was not JUST Israel but most all of Europe including the USA doing business with the S. Africa, so what is NEW? Arabs was doing business with S. Africa too!

But there is a BIG difference; your hate for Jews is based on faith. Not just your naked view of them.

Another point is I'm judging what Muslims are DOING NOW, what you accuse Israelis doing your what your Muslims brothers are doing 3000 times worse to the people in Sudan, so you can spend those empty words on somebody else because Muslims are not doing a DAMN thing to stop the Enslavement and the TAKING OF LAND in SUDAN and the Killing of Black people in Sudan. THAT IS OCCUPATION TOO!!!

And it is ABSOLUTELY WRONG for Muslims to FORCE their faith on other people WHO DON'T WANT IT by law or by force.

Why don't you PROTEST Syria's OCCUPATION IN LEBANON, huh? I guess it's AOK for Muslims to occupy other people's land, right? You protesting that? I doubt it.

It's HYPOCRITICAL for Muslims to cry, "It's the Occupation" when your Muslim Syrian neighbors are doing the same thing in Lebanon. But you don't say a word about that, Oh yeah it's cool because they are Muslim, right?

Peace will never happen with the Jews unless they absolutely leave the area, which is the aim of Hamas and the rest of them Murdering Organizations of Innocent people. Just like the 9/11 brainwashed Islamic extremists. ANYONE who respects the tactics of the organizations that is behind the Suicide bombings of innocent people DO NOT DESERVE TO BE RESPECTED.

Peace will never be attained until Islam changes its religious views of Jews, period. BTW, change your views on people who are not Muslim too while you at it. Perhaps you will stop trying to force it down other people's throats.
My hatred for the Jews? I said I hate the Jews? Well sorry to disappoint you JuneBug but I don't. Zionism is a threat to Judaism and actually compromises it's values. Would it shock you to say that I have Jewish friends? I'm against Zionism NOT Judaism. I suggest you read the Koran before making these useless assumptions. It's AGAINST my religion.

Before you even ridicule my alleged racism or hatred towards a certain ethnic group, I highly suggest you look in the mirror, you're no better.

As for other occupations that occur around the world, there are many. This subject is on Palestine, if it were about anything else, I wouldn't hestitate in mentioning it.

Seeing as I didn't occupy Lebanese land or Sudanese land, i wouldn't be announced a hypocrit for protesting against Israel. I remember when I was in London, they closed down the streets and let 150,000 protest against Israel, these people included Arabs, Muslims but the majority WERE British, both black and white. Why don't you go to these people who are in no way affiliated with their government or history, and call them hypocrits for defending a cause that their colonising government formerly conducted?

Just like Yasser Arafat, PLO, Hamas, Hizbollah etc are deemed terrorists by YOUR country, Nelson Mandela also was. You and I may believe that he was a freedom fighter, but he was seen as a terrorist. You can critisize our Freedom Fighters as long as you like, but if you're were stripped off land, subjected to horrid conditions in Refugee camps, no employment, food, education, I'd like to see how you would react. Don't respect me, I don't require it.

You know what amazes me? You critisize my religion like your is perfect. Please humour me and inform me of this religion of yours?

You label my people racist, brainwashed, hypocritical, haters. Isn't it funny that I find the exact traits in you? Don't throw stones when living in glass houses JuneBug.

BTW, YOU change YOUR views on people who are Muslim. Perhaps YOU will stop trying to force it down other people's throats.

Even if I did hate Jews (which I don't), are you one to talk when you're anti-white folks? You know what else is funny? I think we're a lot alike, you will probably be enraged by that statement or seize it as an opportunity to insult me somehow, but it's true. You're a Black nationalist and I'm an Arab/Muslim one, none of us can blame eachother.

I appreciated your last posts. I put together a long winded juicy response with links but the board went down for some reason and I lost all that I worked on. So, I dropped it.

Stick around please and I encourage you to include other posts\topics outside of what is going on with the Palestines. You said you was interested in African Americans, let's see. roll eyes

I have other interests too cool

I'm sure future events will bring us together again. frown

I still have not change my mind about your faith and culture and I know all Arabs and Muslims are not doped up on Islam, well I least I hope not. wink

Peace and good will to you, JuneBug big grin

Here is something that was included in that lost post:

7 Things the Islamic experts won't tell you!
About Islam's worldview - The Muslims of Islamic states, and many within the USA, have the tradition of a worldview that divides humanity into two opposing halves. Dar al-Islam, House of Islam, is the zone where Islam rules. The other side is the war zone that is called, Dar el Harb, House of War. This worldview dictates that war will continue between these two sections of humanity until the supremacy of Islam is fully established throughout the earth.


About deceptive revisions of the Koran- There has been a great effort among Muslim translators to enhance Islam's appeal and reputation among people of other faiths. To accomplish this they have adopted a slanted, freestyle method of translating certain sections of the Koran. This is done to veil the truth about their religion's primitive barbarism and contempt for Christians and Jews that is revealed in the original Arabic texts. Here is an example from the new French translation of the Koran in regard to the Jews. It reads, "The people of Israel will be twice destroyed as an innocent victim, and God will reward them by elevating them to great heights." The original translation reads just the opposite. "The people of Israel, after sowing corruption twice on earth for the purpose of dominating other people, will push themselves up into a position of extreme power before being punished by God."


About the Koran's violent verses - The Koran was written in two major stages. These have been integrated and arranged by chapter length as opposed to the chronological order in which they were initially written. The first part was penned in the early years of the Islamic movement while Mohammed was living in Mecca, Arabia. The experts boast the verses from these chapters as proof that Islam is a bastion of peace, love, and tolerance. They avoid references to verses from the second and largest portion of the Koran. It was written after the movement relocated its headquarters to Medina, Arabia, and increased in strength. These verses often reflect religious intolerance and encourage cruel hostility towards non-Muslims. Here are two examples that were aimed at Jews, Christians, and Arabs that clung to traditional tribal polytheistic beliefs. - So when the sacred months have passed, slay the idolaters, wherever you find them, and take them captive and besiege them and lie in wait for them in every ambush.... (Koran 9:5) The only punishment of those that wage war against Allah and His Messenger and strive to make mischief in the land is that they should be murdered, or crucified, or their hands and their feet should be cut-off on opposite sides, or they should be imprisoned....(Koran 5:33)


About the stage of weakness/the stage of strength strategy - The stark differences in the tone of the verses that were written in Mecca and those written in Medina exposes a tactic that has been characteristic of Islam throughout its history. Traditionally, Muslims determine the strength of the religion in various settings as being in one of two states; the stage of weakness and the stage of strength. When Muslims are in the minority and perceive that they are vulnerable, it is their custom to agree to most anything and to be conciliatory towards other religious groups. The moment that they sense superiority in numbers and influence, a form of ruthlessness sets in. They begin to oppress minority religious groups and to demonstrate a blatant disregard for the agreements that they made during the stage of weakness.


About sanctioned lying - Unlike Christianity and Judaism, Islam does not simply make a provision for forgiveness if one tells a lie; it actually encourages lying in certain situations. This is evident in both the Koran and the Hadith. The latter is a collection of Mohammed's sayings and deeds according to his wives, relatives, and companions. Next to the Koran, it is the most important part of Islamic law. In the Hadith, Mohammed was quoted as saying, "The sons of Adam are accountable for all lies with the exception of those spoken to reconcile two men that are quarreling, for a man to appease his wife, and in war, because war necessitates deception." This is what often makes life such a nightmare for non-Muslim women that marry Muslim men. Without the pangs of conscience, men are licensed to appease their wives with promises which they have no intention of keeping. In addition, within Islam there is the principle of "Al Takeyya." The term means, "prevention". This principle permits Muslims to lie at their discretion whenever they interpret that it is expedient for the influence of Islam or their personal protection and well-being. They justify lying by using the following verse as a springboard for expanded applications of Al Takeyya. "Let not the believers take the disbelievers for friends rather than believers. And whoever does this has no connection with Allah unless it is done to guard (Takeyya) yourselves against them, guarding carefully. And Allah cautions you against His retribution. And to Allah is the eventual coming." (Koran 3:27) The principle of Al Takeyya is precisely what makes negotiations with Islamic statesmen such a frustrating endeavor for the naïve diplomats of Christianized nations. It is imperative that diplomatic envoys learn that when dealing with Muslims, what Muslim statesmen say is not the issue. The real issue is, what do they mean and actually intend to do in their hearts.


About the depth of hatred for the West - The pro-Islam experts endlessly reiterate that only a small number of Muslims would qualify as West-hating-radicals. The claim is that the majority are peace-loving moderates. This may be true of the majority of Muslims that have immigrated to America in pursuit of economic opportunity. For most of these, strict compliance with the dictates of clerics in relation to the teachings of Islam is secondary to their thirst for prosperity and political freedom. However, their sentiments are not indicative of the majority of the world's 1.2 billion Muslims. The facts are as follows:

Polls indicate that high percentages of our supposed allies in Pakistan and Saudi Arabia support Osama Bin Laden.
Post 9/11, his first name, Osama, has attained a favored name status for newborn male children in a dozen or more Muslim nations. (In some nations 7 out of 10 baby boys are the namesakes of the terrorist).
Numerous Mosques in Islamic states exhibit the photo of Bin Laden as a hero of the faith.
The abbreviated list of nations wherein Muslims mob the streets gleefully chanting "Allah Akbar" (Allah is greater) every time America or Israel suffers from Islamic terrorist activities includes Israel, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Algeria, Libya, Iran, Iraq, Indonesia, Nigeria, and the Philippines. In America, Muslims have been observed doing the same in many convenience marts and mosques. (It may be true that Christianity has a miniscule number of violent radicals; however, you don't find pictures of IRA terrorists hanging in the vestibules of Christian sanctuaries around the globe or hordes of America's Catholics streaming to the aid of their oppressed brethren in Northern Ireland.) The experts can claim that most of the world's Muslims are peace-loving moderates, but the stats reveal that it is the radicals that have the power to influence the hearts and minds of the Muslim masses.


About envy of the West - There are two interrelated spiritual factors for the radical Muslim's hatred for our way of life.


Islamic clerics and political leaders espouse inflammatory anti-Semitic and anti-Christian rhetoric based on the writings and sayings of Mohammed.
The prosperity and technology of nations that are based on Judeo-Christian values embarrasses the Islamic claim of spiritual/cultural superiority and provokes them to virulent jealousy. The premise for Islam's exaggerated sense of spiritual/cultural superiority is built on the widely held Muslim view that they led the world in advances in math, literature and the sciences from 700AD until 1200AD. Many scholars contend that the advances were actually a continuum of the momentum that had been attained, prior to the arrival of the Muslims, by the Persians, Jews, and Christians. A comparison of Islamic nations and other nations gives ample evidence that Islam stifles rather than inspires innovations. No other nations, other than under Muslim rule, that have claimed a history of being fountainheads of cultural advances have ceased to continue as such. Two atomic bombs have not stopped the Japanese. Politically torn South Korea, without oil, has a gross national product of $600 billion. Oil rich Saudi Arabia's GNP is a mere $186 billion. Each year since 1901, the Nobel Prize has been awarded to people that have been distinguished for notable endeavors for world peace and in literature, and for outstanding accomplishments in the sciences. During the history of the Nobel there have been 139 Jewish recipients and well over 200 Christians, but only 6 recipients from Islamic nations. There is nothing lacking in the mental capacities of Muslim people, because they flourish in technology and the sciences when living in Westernized democracies. The objective evidence is that it is the rule of Islam that is the culprit that smothers creativity.

I appreciate yours too, it's been somewhat riviting conversing with you. I've certainly learnt a lot from you. Just one more thing, in West Africa they were suffering from a disease called River Blindness, if I'm correct. No country in the world helped to eradicate this disease except Kuwait, in a form of a campaign called the Kuwaiti Fund. So before you jump to any conclusions about the evilness of Arabs, try to also consider the better side.

Peace unto you too.
