re: Why "occupied Palestine"? We don't call Mexico "occupied Aztec territory"?


The problem is people act like the Palestinians that are in modern Palestine are the same as the biblical Palestinians.

They're not. They're just a bunch of Arab Muslims living there now. Biblical Palestinians are long gone.

Muslims got all "their land" through conquest and should be given nothing. If anything we need a new crusade to finish off the muslims once and for good.

There are Christians right now in Syria, Egypt, Lebanon,etc. who are being driven off their lands but I don't see anyone championing their rights.

Neither are the people that are modern Israeli's.

If you care about such things the fact is based upon DNA testing the present day palestinians are more genetically akin to ancient Palestinians than are the modern Israeli's are to Semites of the Bible.

An ironic comment coming form a lover of Zion.

ummm this isn't 100% true honestly:

'A minority within a minority': Artist tells the story of the Palestinian Christians

Palestinian Christians ‘mistreated’ by Israel at Easter celebrations

Palestinian Christians Struggle
With Israeli Occupation


(To be fair I have never seen any other stories from these last two news sources and they could be 100% outright bias, but I was just trying to show that there is such a thing as a Palestinian Christian)

And there are even Palestinian Jews, however, most if not all of them just became citizens of Israel.

Lebanon was meant to be the "Christian Hub" in the ME, but they are such a minority over there and are overlooked all the time. With that said, there are Catholic churches in places like Kuwait, but as a whole Middle Eastern Christians are overlooked and ignored because they don't fit the Muslim on Muslim fighting or Muslim vs. Jew press story
