Thread Name: Lyr Add: Palestine, My Palestine
Subject: RE: Lyrics: Palestine, My Palestine
Carol C : I used the term "Israelis"---you persist in using the term "Jews". There is a difference--and there is also significant symbolism in your using that terminology.

          You have also not mentioned the rioting that left many--Jews that lived in Palestine (its name at the time--hence my use of the term at this point) dead. Many years prior to the British involvement.
   
          I won't go back to the British involvement since it has been ably covered. In fact one can see parallels to U S involvement in certain foreign governments and doing so under very cloudy pretexts. It is a stretch to make the comparison, I grant you, but that is the sad history of humankind.
