It did, at one time. Land is not an infinite possession it's a possession of the strong, wealthy and/or a product of conflict. What is mine today won't necessarily be mine tomorrow. Ask the Ukrainians or the Armenians or any other nation. ALL land belonged to someone else at one time... historical fact. Only Israel can claim otherwise.

This was and never will be about land for the Palestinian gypsies. There is nothing 'sacred' about Gaza or Israel for the Palestinians. The conflict is just about hating Jews and killing them. Nothing more. The Middle East has tons and tons of land just like or better than Gaza, with no one living on it.

since you vocally defend and support the terrorist activity of Hamas (which is the Islamic Resistance Movement, a sect of the Muslim Brotherhood of Egypt), here is a map and article showing increase in Fatalities from Militant Islamist Violence in Africa, which in this Feb. 2023 report show

Surge by Nearly 50 Percent
By the Africa Center for Strategic Studies

February 6, 2023

Continuing a decade-long upward trend, violent events linked to militant Islamist groups in Africa increased by 22 percent while fatalities surged by 48 percent over the past year.


https://africacenter.org/spotlight/f...ly-50-percent/

i find this chilling and disturbing that you continue to (a) speak out in favor and support of terrorism and atrocities, (b) remain silent and refuse to condemn the terrorism and atrocities, and (c) speak out against those who seek to put an end to extremist violence and atrocities.

Violence linked to militant Islamist groups in Africa surged by 22 percent over the past year (comprising 6,859 events). This represents a new record of extremist violence and reflects a near doubling in the number of such events since 2019. The estimated 19,109 death toll passes the previous peak of 18,850 fatalities linked to militant Islamists set in 2015

One million people were displaced in the Northern Mozambique due to Islamic militant violence.

surely the OP is concerned about those? yet where are the posts and threads of outrage about the Africans being displaced, and the 6,859 events (in one year alone), and the 19,109 deaths from Islamic militant violence. It appears the so-called concern for humanity is selective indeed.

The war is on Hamas. Hamas is an acronym for Islamic Resistance movement, founded as part of the Muslim Brotherhood of Egypt. The war is not on "Palestinians" as the misleading title of this thread misrepresents.

That's why data on Islamic extremist violence is pertinent to this thread.

HAMAS is 100% responsible for every single death on both sides. Fully responsible.

question for the OP.
your posting history shows that you post a lot on the topic of religion and spirituality.

the stated goal of Hamas is to kill Jews. Both Hamas and the PLO have a pay for slay program where citizens are bribed and given financial rewards for killing Jews. The more Jews a person kills, the more money the government pays them.

What are your views on that?

For instance the Palestinian Authority expects to pay nearly $3 million a month to the families of the Hamas terrorists who carried out the deadly massacre on October 7th.


The Palestinian Authority spends nearly $350 million per year on "pay for slay".
But it spends just $220 million for its other welfare programs for the rest of its citizens. These pay for slay cash stipends and financial incentives including monthly allowance are cash incentives to spur Arabs to undertake car ramming and stabbing as a terrorist tactic. "The perverse incentive used by the PA is that the more gruesome and worse the attack, the more money the imprisoned terrorist and their family receives." Also marrying into a family of terrorists who already receive these financial rewards, also results in additional cash payout.

The more Jews a person kills, the more the government pays them. What are the OP's thoughts on spending more on pay for slay than on welfare programs for the citizens?
