Quote of the day

"Through the political debate taking place within Israel, we discover time and again that many Israelis refuse to reconcile themselves to a basic historical truth, which apparently threatens the sense of national justice many of them were raised and educated with: "The Palestinians are natives of this land and have been living here for generations( Actually for 1400 years at the very least-TGIA comment), while the vast majority of Israelis are the descendents (sic) of immigrants who arrived here under various circumstances over the slightly more than past 100 years.

Dror Etkes; Ynetnews, 10 April 2007.(Why can Jewish National Fund land be leased to non-Jewish immigrants, but not to Arabs?)
