Annihilation: the Palestinians are well under control there, for the most part. That was my read.
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;
- Business owners take risk and responsibility and are providing a service by offering anyone employment at all;
- In general there are relatively few Palestinians (defined as non-Israeli citizens) employed by Jewish Israelis (there are some, and they are fortunate to have work permits and employment) because, in general, the risk of them murdering people, or being coopted and used to murder people, is too great to allow large numbers without rigorous screening in granting any of them work permits.
- You are biased; you assume owners have never done all the work themselves at some point in their lives; have you ever washed dishes for money ? I have; lots of people have done that; work is work; are you too risk averse to start your own business and employ others but so willing to criticize those that do ? Rank hypocrisy
- Don't shop for food in this country; too much of it was picked by migrant labor and you wouldn't want to sully yourself doing that work yourself; rank hypocrisy; I have worked in the fields too.
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.
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.

I'm with you on this af_vet_1981.
There are no Arabs or "Persians" who want to help Palestinians by giving them sanctuary, social, or financial support. They only use Palestinians as pawns in their proxy wars against Israel. The Muslims don't give a crap about Palestinians. Israel and the USA has done more for Palestinians than all of the Muslim world combined. And all we get in return is grief and death.
