    I've got a Jewish friend that I've known for 50+ years. In fact my mother and his mother were friends when they were little kids.

    He's pro Hamas, pro Palestinian, and can't understand why Israel won't give the Palestinians "their" land back,

    He thinks if the Israelis treated the Palestinians better, they wouldn't hate them so much.

    On a side note, he thinks if America treated muslims better, they wouldn't hate us so much.

    What an a-hole.

    This.
    You can't fix STUPID. It is a self correcting defect.

    This is pretty much the opinion of anyone who understands anything about the conflict.

    How would you feel if space aliens herded you and yours into a concentration camp and forced a life of poverty on you all?

    You think your friend is an a-hole because he does not think like you?

    How Jewish is this friend? Is he religious? Does he go to a synagogue that teaches what he believes? I wonder if this is a common thought among the Jewish community?

    The Jewish community is not a monolithic group of people. It is fairly diverse but definately trends towards the secular end of the scale. Many American Jews see themselves as inheritors of a cultural identitiy not as followers of a religion, even if they attend services.

    In general, American Jews trend pro Israel.

    Tell him we want the Temple Mount back and the 3rd Temple rebuilt where the Dome of the Rock is occupying the space, as soon as that happens we'll consider giving land 'back.'

    The Arabs are pretty silent about the 800,000 Jews expelled from their lands, can my family get their homes, jewlery, money, etc back that they had to leave behind in Iran??

    I think that is where people like me tend to misunderstand. Raised fundamentalist Christian I think in terms of "Jewish" as being the religion.

    Seems to almost never mean that.

    If he thinks it's all America's fault, ask him why Pasha Yusuf Karamanli of Tripoli (Libya) declared war on the United States on May 14, 1801. It was because the US refused to pay any more tribute to protect US ships from Muslim piracy.

    Islam has been attacking non-Muslims since long before the days of Robin Hood.

    False. There are conflicting, reasonable opinions among informed educated people regarding this issue. If you think there is only "one true way" to examine it, you need to take your head out of the sand.

    I thought this thread was going to be asking for advice on how to welcome them with Hanukkah celebrations so they don't feel left out.

    Issue him his papers and have him ready to display them on command.

    One of my best friends is from Jordan, and he laughs at all the 'pro-Israel' in America. After he told me what is really going on over there between those two (Israel and Palestine) instead of what Fox News tells me, I tend to agree now. Israel needs to get their act together.
