Yeah, palestinians, go back to Saudi Arabia, Yemen, Egypt, Syria, and other Arab/Muslim countries you came from during Turkish/British occupations of Holy Land. Leave the Jews alone to continue build their re-established Jewish State.

@ 3 Yeah, the Jews were expelled after the destruction of the second temple (already a myth that has been debunked by Jewish scholars...), and the land stayed empty till the Ottoman Empire brought Arabs along 15 centuries later, right ? You should stop sniffing Ziocaine. Why don't you tell us about the conversion of the Khazars as well as other people to Judaism ? How did Jews like Youli Edelstein and Anastassia Michaeli come to look so Russian ?

#4 great comment. I also read the Romans did not expel the Jews after the destruction of the temple. Economic reasons were the reason for Jewish leaving. Another interesting fact. What was King Herod the Great was he an Arab or a Jew? The answer is he was both. His first language was Arabic and he was a convert to Judaism from whatever religion he was. In other words an Arab built the great temple of Jerusalem!
