1. Balestinians are a group invented by KGB and Madison Avenue
Alan ,   SA   (09.26.17)
after mid 20th century They are the South Syrian Arabs augmented by Egyptians etc in the boom of the chalutziut prestate years.They are trying to defraud the Jews of Eretz Yisrael.They want the "world" to help them.pull this trick off The Jewhaters dont find this idea unatractive if it will hit the Jews
The Kurds are not an invention ! They are a people and an entity.They deserve a homeland .
2. "Palestine" is the product of Israeli masochism
Chaim ,   Israel   (09.26.17)
Hendel is correct about both the Kurds and "Palestinians". A Kurdish state would be a huge boon for Israel, peace and everything good. Israel should fight for it.

Hendel's statement that "Zionists invented the Palestinian people" is also, unfortunately, right on the money. No "Palestinian" state ever existed. Nor did anyone demand one when Jordan controlled Judea and Samaria. The hoax of "Palestine" is aimed totally at destroying Israel.

It is understandable that Israel's enemies created the hoax of "Palestine". But why does Israel pay homage to it? Why does Israel hold fake "peace talks with Palestinians"?

The answer is awful, but its something we must face. Deep inside, many leftist Israelis don't believe Israel should exist. Their sick souls are tormented by guilt at Israeli victory. They seek relief by empowering our mortal "Palestinian" foes and endangering Israel. Nor is such masochism confined solely to the left.

When more Jews and Israelis learn to love ourselves, our problems with "Palestine" and "Palestinians" will quickly disappear.
3. Rather self evident, wouldn't you agree??!
4. Difference between Kurds "Palestinians"
Alexander ,   Tel Aviv   (09.27.17)
1) There IS a Kurdish language. There ISN'T a "Palestinian" language.

2) There IS a Kurdish identity. There ISN'T a "Palestinian" identity.

3) Kurdistan IS a Kurdish word. "Palestine" is a ROMAN/LATIN word.

4) There IS a Kurdish ethnicity and cultural identity. There ISN'T a "Palestinian" ethnicity or cultural identity.

5) The Kurds ARE the natives of Kurdistan. The "Palestinians" are NEITHER "Palestinians" NOR natives of Israel.

6) Kurds have lived in Kurdistan for centuries. "Palestinians" invaded Israel between the 1880s and the 1940s. "Palestinian history" in Israel is more recent than European imperialist history in North and South America, Middle, East, North Africa, Black Africa, India, Hong Kong, Macao, Indo-China, Australia and New Zealand.

7) Kurds ARE mentioned in ancient historical sources. "Palestinians" ARE NOT mentioned in ANY ANCIENT HISTORICAL SOURCE.

8) Kurds ARE claiming THEIR OWN HOMELAND back. The "Palestinians" are STEALING the Jewish people's homeland Israel.
5. please No more hypocrisy
labib ,   ramallah   (10.02.17)
You can support the division or even destruction of Arab world; this is your colonial role and mission, but Please no more hypocrisy or history distortion; Moslems, Arabs , and Palestinians secured you form Romans, inquisition in Spain, and Othmans allowed you to live in Jerusalem two centuries ago…
Palestinians were not created by Zionists, since your mission is to invent Lies and Just lies.Palestinians mentioned in Your holy books, and Moslem tolerance was mentioned by Dori Gold in his book "hatred's kingdom"
