I am often asked by many Westerners and Zionists:
- Why Palestinians fight the peace loving Israeli?
- Why all this terrorism against the innocent Jews who suffered centuries of persecution?
In details, we have replied to these questions and more at our popular Zionists Frequently Asked Questions. In that respect, it is worth noting what David Ben-Gurion told Nahum Goldman before he died:
"I don't understand your optimism.," Ben-Gurion declared. "Why should the Arabs make peace? If I was an Arab leader I would never make terms with Israel. That is natural: we have taken their country. Sure, God promised it to us, but what does that matter to them? Our God is not theirs. We come from Israel, it's true, but two thousand years ago, and what is that to them? There has been anti-Semitism the Nazis, Hitler, Auschwitz, but was that their fault? They only see one thing: we have come here and stolen their country. Why should they accept that? They may perhaps forget in one or two generations' time, but for the moment there is no chance. So it's simple: we have to stay strong and maintain a powerful army. Our whole policy is there. Otherwise the Arabs will wipes us out".
"But how can you sleep with that prospect in mind," I broke in, "and be Prime Minister of Israel too?"
Who says I sleep? he answered simply. (The Jewish Paradox by Nahum Goldman, p. 99)
I agree with many thing Ben-Gurion said in this quotes, especially about him having sleepless nights; thieves do not sleep well. As usual thieves are always afraid of retribution, they're always worried; they're captivated with fear which is exactly how the average Israeli feels. On the other hand, Palestinians and Arabs may disappoint him about couple of things:
- It has been three generation since Nakba, and Palestinians still hold on to their looted homes' keys (inside Israel) more than ever. It has become an honor to inherit that key from one generation to another.
- Ben-Gurion will be amazed how many Zionist Arab leaders (several of them Palestinian leaders) are ready to sell Palestinian rights so they can retain their positions of power and financial gains

Any person around the world has the right to defend his home and family when attacked, however, in the West a Palestinian does not have that right despite that his home and farms were stolen by Holocaust survivals. Westerners (especially Europeans) for centuries took turns gang rapping their Jewish citizens, and because of that their guilty conscious burns them from the inside out. This guilty conscious (beside the powerful Zionists lobby) are the reasons why the West covers up Israeli war crimes and continues to paint Israeli apartheid as "the only democracy in the Middle East". Somebody else has to pay for their crimes against their Jews so long it is not a Westerner who pays the price; this way they can sleep well at night.History will tell that not only the West have wronged Palestinians by making them pay for their crimes, but also they have wronged their Jewish citizens twice: Once for the many Holocausts they have committed against their Jews, and the second for locking them into an endless struggle with stubborn Arabs who will not sell their rights for any price.Our DATE is 59 years LATE, we shall return.
