Islam Is Hate
A brief leafing through the khoran will quickly reveal that any one who doesent beleive in mohammad is to be killed.Mohammad is glorified for killing and raping. How can anyone say that Islam is any thing but a religion that preaches murder and cruelty.

Why limit this to Israel?
Sorry I am afraid that this hate is spread outside of Israel as well. I will not differentiate between us and them for a minute, but rather between Muslims and the rest of the world. This hate is propagated against all who are not Muslim. That is the definition of a cult. Add to this cult the mighty sword and you have terrorism which we are fighting on many sides. Yet, we close our eyes to this. For some insane reason we fail to see that which is before us. I do not hate anyone but I have been witness to the type of hate that this video is talking about. Who has not? Particulars do not make it right but when one has a theory underlying all these particulars and when the leaders of that cult are not saying anything against it then we are the ones to blame for not doing anything about it. Islam is not a religion. It is an ideology. It is a cult. It is at war with the democratic principles of the world.

To Hussein (3)
Up to this day I don't know about any significant palestinian arab movement that accept the right of the jewish people to live in freedom in its own homeland.
There are some who accept the existance of jews, as second class citizens (or Dimmies), subjected to humiliation and pogroms from time to time by their muslim "dominant" neiboughrs.

Yo are right Hussein but...
You are right Hussein that the terrorists do not represent all palestinians. However, the question still remains, if hate is taught to the children is there hope?

you can't make peace with someone who refuses to make peace with you. israel is not looking for ways to avoid peace; we are only trying to protect ourselves. this is the same kind of brainwashing that went on leading up to the holocaust. as a response to number 3- of course there are good arabs just as there were rightous gentiles in the holocaust- however, they are far and few between, and the majority hate us.
a real jew,

Other Voices in Palestine
Hamas is not everything in Palestine. There are other people who think totaly different and have nothing against Jews. Will you focus on some of them. Have you heared about Mohammad Hussein, the first Palestinian who studied Jewish studies in a Jewish-Zionist college. Do you need knowledge about him?

More of the same for 4000 years
The same as always as it always has been. This is the way of Amalek and his people.

Hate begets hate
There will be no peace as long as hate is the staple of a society. There is no other answer to your question.
All sides have to learn to resolve and forgive then move on. Then they must without fail keep their side of the agreement. Only these things result in peace.

Arab leaders gain power through this hatred
Because all the problems are blamed on Israel this allows the Arab leaders to impoverish the people and enrich their personal coffers. The poor and poorly educated believe whatever propaganda they hear and unite behind their leader(s). It doesn't pay off in power and $$$ for these groups/countries to change.
