Hmmmm..... Certainley a can of worms. I think anyone who has a close look at
the history of the region from 1948 onwards would have to question whether
the Palestinians have really had a fair deal. I don't condone violence as
an answer to solving problems of any kind - but having said that, nobody has
kicked me out of *my* home and given it somebody else from another country.
I wonder what my reaction would be if that had happened...
