This is really Disturbing

Instead of trying to promote peace, Palestinians and other middle eastern groups show nothing but hatred. Look at these animated cartoons they show on TV for Children to watch.

http://memritv.org

then do search. Select country (Iran). Subject Jihad and Terrorism

press search and you should see the cartoon. Sorry I tried to make it easier for you all to see.

The link is working now. Yes, this is disturbing. Looks like material used to brainwash kids. The heading on the linked page says it's from Iranian TV. This is all we need - a generation bred on hate for the West with new nuclear toys.

Unlike here, where children are never brainwashed by ideologically-motivated parents and teachers.

Aren't we lucky we're not Arabs?

Okay, sorry for the sarcasm, because it is fundamentalism of *all kinds* that makes the world a scary place.

Yesterday someone asked me why can the Greeks and the Turks more or less live peacefully beside each other, and agree to disagree on crucial stuff like Cyprus, but the Palestinians, Iranians, and Israelis don't? I couldn't answer her question.

I guess we have our TBN and other associated religious networks, but I don't know if the programming runs a similar tact.

Yeah, it would be interesting to hear some thought on why some Palestinians still call for the destruction of Israel.

And why they promote and fester this hatred.

One historical fact: There has never been a state called Palestine.

A good question: Why have other Arab countries denied the Palestinians from settling in their countries?

Or, provide meaningful financial aid (beyond families of suicide bombers).

Since many have suggested that poverty leads to terrorism, it is quite possible that other Arab countries keep the Palestinians poor so they can have foot soldiers in the battle with Israel.

A better question: Why has the United States denied Canadians from settling in its country?

Just as there isn't common solidarity amongst white people, there isn't common solidarity amongst Arabs.

But, there already is a Canada.

And just about every Arab country trumpets an independent Palestine.

I don't see what the linked clips have to show about Palestinians or any other Arabs for that matter, since they're from an Iranian government-run TV station.

Actually Lebanon, Syria, and Saudi Arabia are all home to several hundred thousand Palestinian refugees and their children, and Egypt to about 70,000. And more than 2.5 million Palestinian refugees and their children live in Jordan. It's true that only Jordan has extended them permanent full citizenship, although in the other countries they can hold work permits etc., and most have long since been moved out of refugee camps and into regular housing.

By comparison to other refugee-deluged countries around the world, there is nothing particularly unusual about how the neighboring Arab countries have handled this situation. Most countries tend to balk at taking in, let alone permanently accommodating, large numbers of refugees from strife-ridden neighboring countries--because they fear "spillover" instability (which Jordan and Lebanon have seen lots of), because they fear economic drain, because they are loath to be seen as implicitly accepting responsibility for another state's internal problems, etc. etc.

By this logic, most all present-day Arab countries--not to mention scores of other states elsewhere, whose borders were arbitrarily created by European bureaucrats and their local-elite cronies as the colonial era ground to a close--are illegitimate too. It's the rare nation-state that can claim to be based on any consistently endorsed "national" identity stretching back over centuries.

Amazing what needs to be spelled out for some people.
