ridiculous comments by gaza strip settlers

Okay, so I was about to walk out of the door to go for a swim, but I saw this on BBC and I just couldn’t let myself go anywhere without blogging about the idiocy of this statement by a demonstrator in the Gaza Strip. So there are some Isreali settlers protesting planned withdrawls from the Gaza Strip. One of them says (I shit you not) “Imagine living in a place your entire life and then being asked to leave – it is our land, it hurts, it hurts…” And these are the same people who wonder why the Palestinians are upset. The same Palestinians who were told to get lost when some British diplomat decided that it might be a good idea to displace all these Arabs because he was friendly with a few Zionists. So yeah, this guy is pissed that he is being told to move from a place where he chose to settle knowing full well that it was in a disputed zone. Well, I’ve got news for him. There are a few million Palestinians who are also pissed at being told that they and their families no longer have any real prospect of returning to their homes.
