I do not really care about my disadvantage I find this and other sites, lack any contextual scholarship that would include a story with two sides, so you are saying you do not want to engage because your side is the ultimate and only side, so I must be at such a disadvantage, you must be so uneducated in history or scholarship and debate, even the discussion of Joan Peters book, yes some people call it rubbish, but many people cal the attacks on greatly exaggerated, and Dershowitz has argued forcefully against the attacks. I am not saying you version is wrong, but common. So what I am saying is most Zionist think this fight for land is a religious fight not a territorial fight, that is what emerged after all this time. So any negotiations (to Zionist) are a trojan horse on the way to complete control of Israel, where the Jews are gone. You can think this is retarded but it has a side to argue. Ever read the Hamas Charter calling for genocide of the Jews? Why write that if you are only interested in ” nationalistic goals of self determination”. That’s right kill the Jews. Below from Rashid Kahlidi.
In his 1997 book, Palestinian Identity: The Construction of Modern National Consciousness, historian Rashid Khalidi notes that the archaeological strata that denote the history of Palestine—encompassing the Biblical, Roman, Byzantine, Umayyad, Fatimid, Crusader, Ayyubid, Mamluk and Ottoman periods—form part of the identity of the modern-day Palestinian people, as they have come to understand it over the last century, but derides the efforts of some Palestinian nationalists to attempt to “anachronistically” read back into history a nationalist consciousness that is in fact “relatively modern.” Khalidi stresses that Palestinian identity has never been an exclusive one, with “Arabism, religion, and local loyalties” playing an important role. He argues that the modern national identity of Palestinians has its roots in nationalist discourses that emerged among the peoples of the Ottoman Empire in the late 19th century which sharpened following the demarcation of modern nation-state boundaries in the Middle East after World War I. He acknowledges that Zionism played a role in shaping this identity, though “it is a serious mistake to suggest that Palestinian identity emerged mainly as a response to Zionism.” Khalidi describes the Arab population of British Mandatory Palestine as having “overlapping identities,” with some or many expressing loyalties to villages, regions, a projected nation of Palestine, an alternative of inclusion in a Greater Syria, an Arab national project, as well as to Islam. He writes that,”local patriotism could not yet be described as nation-state nationalism.”
You hate Zionist with no mitigating factors for debate, you hate Jews. The rest is bullshit. Go worry about the Syrians, where more muslims have died in 5 minutes than Palestinians in the entire conflict since 1948
