The very idea that the Palestinians are the good guys in her mind is anti-Semitic, and the notion that Israel is "oppressing" them. This entire conflict is caused by the Arabs and Muslims refusal to accept Israel. Let's say Jews and Muslims have equal rights to the land so the proposed partition was fair but the Muslims rejected it and wanted the entire land for themselves.

Israel already left Gaza and Gaza is self-governing under Hamas with alll the sharia law they want yet the Palestinians are still not satisfied. By the way there was no "Palestinian" land before 1948 the way there was a French nation or an Italian nation. The Arab world was a collection of tribes with artificial borders drawn by European colonial powers. The Palestinian identity is centered around their opposition to Israel there is nothing else unique about Palestinian culture that distinguishes them from other Arab Muslims like the Jordanians, Syrian, and Egyptians and Iraqis.

You name it.
American Jews run most of the news media and Hollywood but not the other things you mention. I don't think insurance, health care or the oil industry have a lot of Jewish influence. There are many powerful Jewish power brokers in Congress and in the media though that's just a fact not a criticism. IN fact I hope once Ilhan Omar goes too far they finally will instruct their journalists under them to be less anti-Trump and write more negative coverage of the Democrats.

She won't, her loyalties are with Islam and only Islam. Not with Christians, Jews, Sikhs, Hindhus, or Bhudists.

Considering the source, is an anti-Semitic Islamist, yes. Just like Farrakhan.

Only way to answer that question is "no".
No, not really. It was a very straight forward and direct question, nothing tricky.

That you are unwilling to answer it is telling. Your cover is blown.

Which of their policies offend you? Education, health, welfare; or just ones relating to defending their right to exist?
How about their crappy treatment of the Palestinians, as well as the expanding settlements?

Maybe they should just do what the Arabs did to the Jews throughout the Middle East - expel them, and then take their land and property. Since I never hear the anti-Israel contingent complain about that (in fact, they change the subject if someone brings it up), I assume they'd be fine with that.

Two wrongs don't make a right. The settlements need to stop, and the Israeli government needs to stop treating the Palestinians like an inconvenience in their dream for an ethnostate that they wish would just go away.

Yup. You just proved my point. Ignore the horrific treatment the Arabs have done to Jews in their countries (they don't do it anymore because they got rid of them all), and go back to putting the onus on Israel. (Youre a liberal, I'm guessing.)

The Palestinians, under the leadership of Islamic terrorists, want to wipe Israel off the map. They're more than an "inconvenience" to Israel. What would you suggest Israel do? Withdraw and allow HAMAS an unfettered strip of land from which to launch rockets and suicide attacks? Nope. Until HAMAS agrees with Israel's right to exist, it will do what they need to to defend itself.

P.S.When you use terms like "ethno-state," you reveal your animus toward Jews. FYI, 20% of Israel's population is Muslim, and they even serve in the Parliament.

The Palestinians are never going to be integrated into Israeli society any more than the Jews are going to be integrated into the Jordanian society, Lebanese Society, or any other of the surrounding countries. Let the Jordanians/Palestinians go to Jordan so they can be with their own people.
