Subject: RE: Lyrics: Palestine, My Palestine
Rabbi-Sol, I don't have time to answer your 24 May 04 - 08:08 PM post with regard to the specifics of it right at the moment, but you really need to try to understand that what the majority of Palestinians, and even Palestinian terrorists, want has nothing to do with their religion, which can be either Christian or Muslim (and yes, there have been some acts of "terrorism" committed by Palestinian Christians), but is for the purpose of accomplishing one goal. That goal is to end the occupation of the West Bank, Gaza, and East Jerusalem, and to get some recognition for their legitimate grievances.

Now, I don't condone any kind of violence committed against civilians by anyone, Palestinian or Israeli. But if people continue to misconstrue the motives of those who do these things, the problems will never get solved.
