The Arab Catholic guide we had on the Steve Ray tour told us of their persecution by the the Israel government. It's not a story one reads here. I wouldn't have believed it had I not seen it. The Israels have every right in the world to defend themselves. Is is SUCH a one-sided battle. The Israeli whump the holy tar out of the Jihadists every time. They deserve it. Terrorism is a plague on humanity. The same battle goes on in India and Pakistani territories.
The Palestinian said that the Palestinian Muslims and Israeli government have been at it for as long as he remembers. The thing that struck most sour for the Palestinians was the taking of Palestinian land and homes. One guy still has the key to his grandmother's house in former Palestine. Ain't no more Palestine anymore. They LOST the world's shortest war--six days. Get over it.
They DO get on with their lives. Most Palestinians don't care who the government leaders are anymore--they mistrust all governments and their leaders.
My read on it. I was only there for three weeks.
WHAT a fabulous trip...Nazareth, Bethlehem, Cana, sea of Galilee (you'll eat "Peter's fish" at the local restaurant) and, of course, Calvary and Our Lord's tomb. I prayed at the rock where Jesus prayed--"Thy will be done." I laid my rosary on the very slab where they laid Jesus right off His Cross. And then, in His Tomb I was able to do nothing but weep and wonder.
EVERY Christian should visit the Holy Land.
The TOPPER was eating at a restaurant that was a memorial to Elvis Presley. Harhar, was that ever a nonsequiter or what. Naturally I had the requisite hamburger, fries and chocolate milk shake. Yummers.
There are a couple of photos there. I would post them but I have FORGOTTEN how to post images and graphics.
Any help would be muchly appreciated. Thank you.
Except when they deliberately murder the Israeli men, women, children, and babies ...
The business owners use them for the labor the owners don't want to do--dishwashers, waiters, cleaners, farm labor. That's what I saw.
That is just wrong on multiple levels;

What persecution ? providing access to Israeli jobs ? providing access to Israeli electricity ? providing access to Israeli medical care ? Or is it persecution to not allow palestinians free access anywhere in Israel so they can blow up Israelis ? Obviously you swallowed this nonsense but don't expect it to go unchallenged here.
