When the avowed goal of the people desiring entry and live in Israel is it's destruction what would you expect. In addition it was established as a Jewish homeland and should remain so.
Quote:Its not like Arabs are born with this dying wish to 'drive those Jews into the sea'. And Israel does all the efforts to stimulate the hate and fear of their arab neigbours.
The Arabs would like nothing better than to drive the Israeli's into the sea. They have tried several times starting with the day Israel was proclaimed a state. A little honesty on your part would be appreciated but frankly unexpected.
"Why make a new homeland (after WW II) if you already got one?"
Oh man...you've got to be kidding...Jews, Christians and Muslims alike claim that scrap of desert as holy land. Muslim Arabs already controlled 98% of the land in the area, Christians already had Rome and the Vatican, and why should anyone be forced to live in Russia? All the Jews should go back to Russia I suppose, according to the reasoning in that statement....check your history of the Jewish experience in Russia, you might get it then. Incidentally, most Jews in the world do not live in Israel, nor do they have any desire to. I am just trying to state that biblical prophecy lead to goal of establishing a Jewish homeland in what is now Israel, and there is no reasoning against anything that it is a matter of faith. Why the UN agreed to sanction the state of Israel was an issue of guilt and politics. I'll say it again, blame the current government in Israel, don't blame the Jews. Why don't we just stick to the discussion of Israel, their policies, and the claims of the Palestinians, and avoid unspecific terms like Jews and Arabs, yes? Sounds too much like 'Cowboys and Indians'...
New Law Raises Obstacles to Israeli-Palestinian Marriages
The government did not disclose precise figures for how many Palestinians had become Israeli citizens or residents, or had submitted applications to do so. Israeli officials said that 49 Israelis had been killed in 20 attacks that to some extent involved Palestinians who had entered Israel through family unification.
That's enough to pass this law in my view.
I agree on the Arabs vs Jews, got a bit carried away by Au.
my post saying let's stick to the issue without resorting to using generic terms like 'Jews' and 'Arabs'
You are not a Palestinian or an Arab from the surrounding countries. In addition obviously you are not a resident of an Arab nation. They at least their governments goal has been to destroy Israel.
