Someone asked how the Palaestinians survived before Isreal providing the tax. It is called the UN. Ever wonder why the refer to city's as refuge centers? It is because the UN will provide funding.
The UN? Good, for a second there I thought the USA might have been paying for it.

I was under the impression that the US funded about a quarter of the UN's annual budget, most of which the UN then passes on to some rather dodgy recipients.

Oct. 29, 2000: A Palestinian boy, Fares Udah, 13, confronts an Israeli tank, during a Jewish incursion on Gaza City. He survived the encounter with the tank only to be shot dead by the Israelis on Nov. 8.

Hebron again. Notice Israeli soldiers standing by while the Palestinian mother is greeted by the children of "settlers". This is the only such photo I have ever seen published in the U.S. (in USA Today)

And while we're at it, would anyone like to dilate upon the history of the United State in relation to the misfortunes of its indigenous population? Yet again?

Lying, stealing, wars, genocide. Yep.

And Bot says this is good.
It sounds as though some may need to relieve themselves of the burden of US citizenship.
Az, that is hardly a rational conclusion. US citizenship guarantees the right to be critical of the actions of the United States government. I am not proud of how we handled our transactions with the Native American population, are you? In general I don't think many Americans are proud of the lying, cheating and stealing that went on then. It might very well be one reason why we haven't officially condoned that as the centerpiece of our foreign relations strategy since, or at least until recently. Jim

Similar photos & events can be posted by the Isrealis also. My only point is that neither side is innocent.

When I have time I will post some of the other sides propganada to respond to the propoganada that has already been posted.
