Liberty is lost through complacency and a subservient mindset. When we accept or even welcome automobile checkpoints, random searches, mandatory identification cards, and paramilitary police in our streets, we have lost a vital part of our American heritage. America was born of protest, revolution, and mistrust of government. Subservient societies neither maintain nor deserve freedom for long.

Did someone mention anti-semenism? It's a terrible thing you know. When your girlfriend or wife doesn't swallow it's a horrible insult to your masculinity.Too much anti-semitism within the Ron Paul faction. Don't you know that the poor Palestinians are simply trying to enjoy their hot cocoa and gum gum drops?
The more I see this, the more evil I see. The truth doesn't require smokescreens.
The religious ideology of the Palestinian Authority religious leaders can be summarized by eight essential principles:
Regarding the Jews:
Jews are the enemy of Allah.
Islam is fighting a continuous religious war against the Jews.
The killing of Jews is a religious obligation.
Palestinians are the vanguard in this war against the Jews, and all Islamic nations are obligated to assist in this war.
- All of the land between the Jordan River and the Mediterranean Sea (which includes all of Israel) is a religious Waqf -- an Islamic religious trust. Any Moslem who relinquishes any part to Israel is damned to Hell.
- All agreements with Israel are inherently temporary in nature, and are signed only because of Israel's temporary balance of power advantage.
- Allah will replace Moslems who shirk their obligation to battle Israel.
- The ultimate destruction of Israel is a certainty.
The Palestinians repeatedly use Islamic sources to defend this religious hatred, even demanding the killing of Jews as a current obligation and the will of Allah. At least four times in recent months, Palestinian religious leaders have taught publicly that the following Hadith (Islamic traditions attributed to Mohammed) is an authoritative directive of Islam today, expressing Allah's will that obedient Moslems kill Jews. According to Sheikh Muhammed Abd al Hadi La'afi, quoted in the official P.A. newspaper Al-Hayat Al-Jadida (May 18, 2001), and Dr. Muhammed Ibrahim Madi, delivering the main Friday sermon on Palestinian TV (April 13, 2001), the Hadith itself states:
"The Day of Resurrection will not arrive until the Moslems make war against the Jews and kill them, and until a Jew hiding behind a rock and tree, and the rock and tree will say: 'Oh Moslem, oh servant of Allah, there is a Jew behind me, come and kill him!'"

Not trying to derail this thread, but does anyone have a recommendation for a good book pertaining to the creation of Israel or its history in general? I would prefer something without bias, although I know that's going to be next to impossible to come by. This is one aspect of international relations that I have to admit to being very uneducated about.
Shlomo Sand is an Israeli history professor, and his research is solid.
MoneyWhereMyMouthIs2, the link would probably work for your question as well.
http://www.ifamericansknew.org“Countering official Zionist historiography, Sand questions whether the Jewish People ever existed as a national group with a common origin in the Land of Israel/Palestine. He concludes that the Jews should be seen as a religious community comprising a mishmash of individuals and groups that had converted to the ancient monotheistic religion but do not have any historical right to establish an independent Jewish state in the Holy Land. In short, the Jewish People, according to Sand, are not really a “people” in the sense of having a common ethnic origin and national heritage. They certainly do not have a political claim over the territory that today constitutes Israel and the occupied Palestinian territories, including Jerusalem.”
