"Mahmood Nouraldin Mahmood"
This argument is becoming ridiculous. I find it insulting to respond to Mr Feeny, anonymous and even you David. But I will post my last response to all your views.
Let us start with some facts first
1- I am not an Arab. In fact I am a Kurd. Nouraldin, which was my father’s name, is a Kurdish name.
2- I am not a Moslem. As I stated before I don’t believe in God. If Mr Feeny and anonymous want to believe in the Passover, Exodus and the parting of the Red Sea, the Plagues, Feeding of the 5000 thousand and accept the fact that the omnipotent and omniscient Almighty created us then sent us his son so that we can kill him, I will respect their right to be Retards.
3- I am not a racist. How can I be a racist when my father is Kurdish, my mother is half Turkish and half Arabic and my wife is English? By the way I’m also British and I’ve got the passport to prove it.
4- I believe that a person’s religion, race, country of origin….etc are accidents of birth. I judge people by their character and I disapprove of labels like White, Black, Christian, Jewish, Moslem or Marsian.
5- I know that religion was an important factor in the past. Many good deeds as well as many atrocities were committed in the name of religion many years ago. True, The Kingdom of Israel existed about three thousand years ago. And as anonymous rightly states, the Arabs were not in North Africa, Syria…etc. So should we ask the Arabs to get on their camels and travel back to the deserts of Arabia, and grant the original natives of North Africa the right to nationhood? If we go back to the political map of that period there will be utter chaos. As said before Iraq was part of Persia. About 1500 years ago Turkey was ruled by the Romans.
6- It is a sad fact that minorities in every country suffer from discrimination. To say that their plight entitles them to have their own state is ridiculous. Two wrongs don’t make a right. I’m surprised that David can be so naïve.
I’m not concerned about the wrights and wrongs of Hamas,Hisb-Allah, or the Israelis recent actions. In fact I reject and despise the religious ideologies of all of the above. However, since we were born in the twentieth century and are living in the 21st century, I asked the following simple questions- How can a religious sect have a “HOMELAND”? Since when did God, IF SUCH AN ENTITY EXISTS, become an “ESTATE AGENT”. Will Israel become my “HOMELAND” if I convert to Judaism?
I am still waiting for an answer from Mr Feeny, anonymous and you David. Anybody with little grey matter between their ears will realize that Israel is founded on racist grounds. History has shown that racist states cannot live in peace with their neighbours. There will never be peace in the Middle East as long as the Jewish immigrants of Israel think it is their God given right to be there. This is a simple but very sad fact.
And David, racism and human right are incompatible
