keren ,   Sao Paulo   (10.12.06)
But,I guess I know why rice and Cia. really don't want this REAL solution: who will be the next idiots to buy their weapons,war ships and so many other materials? Israelis and palis are very good consumers,after all!
32. Will US Stop Daily Humiliation of US Airport SECURITY CHECKS

33. U.S. Would Rather THOUSANDS DIE than OFFEND One Muslim
Linda Rivera ,   New York   (10.12.06)
Council on American-Islamic Relations: "Islam isn't in America to be equal to any other faiths, but to become dominant. The Koran, the Muslim book of scripture, should be the highest authority in America, and Islam the only accepted religion on Earth." - Omar Ahmad (CAIR co-founder). Addressing a youth session at the 1999 Islamic Association for Palestine's annual convention in Chicago, CAIR founder Omar Ahmad praised suicide bombers who "kill themselves for Islam," Guarding America's freedom and protecting Americans is NOT U.S. policy. Protecting Israelis and preventing Islamic conquest of all Israel is also not the U.S. agenda. There is no war on terror! We are witnessing the death of Western civilization. August 18, 2006 Controversial Muslim group gets VIP airport security tour Feds show CAIR latest screening steps, sensitive counterterrorism procedures The Department of Homeland Security took a Muslim group with known past ties to terror organizations on a VIP tour of security operations at the nation's busiest airport at the same time British authorities were working to break up a plot to blow up U.S. airlines. On June 21, a senior DHS official from Washington personally guided Muslim officials from the Council on American-Islamic Relations on a behind-the-scenes tour of Customs screening operations at O'Hare International Airport in response to CAIR complaints that Muslim travelers were being unfairly delayed as they entered the U.S. from abroad. CAIR is a spin-off of the Islamic Association for Palestine, identified by two former FBI counterterrorism chiefs as a "front group" for the Palestinian terrorist group Hamas. Several CAIR leaders have been convicted on terror-related charges. ...U.S. Customs and Border Patrol agents were asked to describe for CAIR representatives various features of the high-risk passenger lookout system. In a meeting, Brian Humphrey, Customs and Border Patrol's executive director of field operations, assured CAIR officials that agents do not single out Muslim passengers for special screening and that they must undergo a mandatory course in Muslim sensitivity training. The course teaches agents that Muslims believe jihad is an "internal struggle against sin" and not holy warfare. Customs agents involved in the CAIR tour at O'Hare tell WorldNetDaily they were outraged that headquarters would reveal sensitive counterterrorism procedures to an organization that has seen several of its own officials convicted of terror-related charges since 9-11. "Isn't that nice of CBP," one agent said, to provide a "group like CAIR with a guided, behind-the-scenes tour of our customs facilities, explaining how programs designed to catch Muslim terrorists work." A Customs and Border Protection supervisor... "It's all about how Islam means peace and tolerance," he told WorldNetDaily. "We're told how to deal with Arabs and Muslims, that they are loving people and not terrorists. That jihad is struggle with sin and has nothing to do with violence." CAIR – which is bankrolled by the Saudis and the United Arab Emirates, two countries that formally recognized the Taliban – also offers religious and cultural sensitivity training about Islam and Muslims to the military... Also in June, CAIR was invited by the Pentagon to a ceremony dedicating the first Islamic center in Marine Corps history at Quantico headquarters outside of Washington. Washington-based CAIR also has regular meetings with the FBI and Justice Department. In fact, FBI case agents complain the bureau rarely can make a move in the Muslim community without first consulting with CAIR, which sits on its advisory board...
34. To No. 29, Mike

While I can't say I totally disagree with you, as someone who's living in Israel, I'm sure you have to be aware of the fact that the U.S. gets plenty in return for the money it gives to Israel, including a state of the art Russian tank that our military was dying to get its hands on and would have cost us billions of dollars in research and development if it hadn't been captured by the Israelis and turned over to us after the Yom Kippur War. But, that's only one just happens to be one of the more dramatic ones. On the other hand, what do we get in return for the money we give to the Palestinian Authority?
Linda Rivera ,   New York   (10.12.06)
56 Muslim countries. Only one Jewish state. 22 HUGE, oil-wealthy Arab countries cover over six million square miles, over ten percent of the land surface of earth. TINY, over-crowded Israel, only one tenth of one percent of the Middle East. Stop the land grab of Jewish land - Arab Muslims first started calling themselves "Palestinians" in 1967. Islamist religious supremacists want Jews ethnically cleansed from Biblical Jewish Judea and Samaria because Jews don't follow Islam. Around 1948, Arabs violently ethnically cleansed one million Jews from Arab countries. Racist, religious supremacist Arab governments confiscated the land, schools, homes, synagogues, businesses, farms, hospitals and bank accounts of the Jews. Most Jewish refugees fled to Israel where the religious terror war against Jews never stops. It is unacceptable to Muslims for Jews to have self-rule. A bloody jihad that spans the globe. Alija Izetbegovic stated in the ISLAMIC DECLARATION that: - "there can be neither peace nor coexistence between the Islamic faith and non-Islamic social and political institutions"; Ethics demands that Arab countries compensate the Jewish refugees and their descendants - half of Israel's Jewish population - in land and finances. This human right of Jews must be discussed constantly with the U.S. EU, UN, and in homes, schools, social activities, cultural events and synagogues.

Right of return is non-negotiable. All Jewish land stolen in the 1948 Islamic invasion must be returned. In 1948, Egypt invaded Gaza, ethnically cleansing all Jews. In 1948, Jordan invaded Judea, Samaria and east Jerusalem, ethnically cleansing all Jews. Jordan destroyed 58 sacred synagogues in Jerusalem. Arab Muslims first started calling themselves "Palestinians" in 1964. When Israel won Islam's war of aggression against her in 1967, Jews returned to the areas of their homeland they had been ethnically cleansed from for 19 years. Jew-haters deceitfully call Jews' legitimate return "occupation". Under international law, territories are considered "occupied" only when taken in an act of aggression which does not apply to Israel. Judea, Samaria and Gaza are not 'occupied territories' according to international law because they were not taken from any foreign sovereign. The religious terror war against Jews never stops. It is unacceptable to Muslims for Jews to have self-rule in the tiny, re-born Jewish state - a bloody, global war to subjugate every nation to Islam, ruled by sharia law. Alija Izetbegovic stated in the ISLAMIC DECLARATION that: - "there can be neither peace nor coexistence between the Islamic faith and non-Islamic social and political institutions"; Jewish ownership of the land, homes and buildings stolen from the Jews in the 1948 Islamic invasion must be restored! The inalienable rights of Jews to their land must be discussed constantly with the U.S. EU, UN and in homes, schools, social activities, cultural events and synagogues.
37. 32 linda - humiliating airport checkpoints?
mike ,   israel (formerly usa   (10.12.06)
sound familiar? not so great when you're the one being pointlessly checked, eh?
38. don't get mad, people
israeli ,   israel   (10.12.06)
Condy refers to the Palestinians being humiliated by their own corrupt leaders. They have to free of occupation from terrorist organizations who have hijacked them and thwart any attempt at leading a normal life in Gaza, Jenin, Nablus, etc. No wonder the different factions are fighting it out among themselves in Gaza. Remember Lebanon I?
39. I agree with # 29
Keren ,   Sao Paulo   (10.12.06)
Very good relations with US government ,and all other countries,are very important,of course,but it can be done in a level of equality and mutual interests. "Aid"brings with it only disasters,in the form of filthy corruption;deals against People;humiliating subservience;etc. The price to be payed for that "aid"is extremely high.I don't think it worths at all!
40. Humiliation
Brod ,   USA   (10.12.06)
This word is the theme song of Islamist-Jihadists. I hope Rice does not get manipulated into using this crap.
42. #37 Airport Security Checks Necessary to SAVE LIVES
Linda Rivera ,   New York   (10.12.06)
I was being sarcastic in comment #32. Muslim human bomb killers continuously attempt to infiltrate Israeli cities. The U.S. regard Israeli security checkpoints that attempt to save Israeli lives as being a "daily humiliation" to PA society. The U.S. treat Jewish Israeli lives as valueless.
43. 2 states? aint happening
kt ,   usa   (10.12.06)
fortunately for Isreal...God doesnt have a 2 state solution ...we better get on board....long live the King from Jerusalem!!
44. Rice this is how we make money
Palestinian   (10.12.06)
from US and Europe. well our leaders gets most of the money... that is.
45. Thank you, #38 Israel, Israel
CJ ,   USA   (10.13.06)
I have read every article on this issue I could find. Never does she say Israel is humiliating Palestine. Amazing how fast people will pounce like a pack of wild dogs.
46. palestinian humiliation
Laura Gutman, M.D. ,   Durham, USA   (10.15.06)
The ONLY sourcesof humiliation for the palestinians are their own actions. That Rice can't understand this basic fact is feeble, pitiful, in-denial, humiliating for Americans, ignorant, hypocritical, frivolous, and dangerous. She is a major threat to the safety of everyone including the palestinians, whose lunacies she is encouraging.
