History time-line (facts)
17th-6th C. BCE

c.17th century (BCE) - Abraham, Isaac, Jacob - patriarchs of the Jewish people and bearers of a belief in one God - settle in the Land of Israel. Famine forces Israelites to migrate to Egypt. c.13th century (BCE) - Exodus from Egypt: Moses leads Israelites from Egypt, followed by 40 years of wandering in the desert. Torah, including the Ten Commandments, received at Mount Sinai. 13th-12th centuries (BCE) - Israelites settle in the Land of Israel c.1020 (BCE) - Jewish monarchy established; Saul, first king. c.1000 (BCE) - Jerusalem made capital of David's kingdom. c.960 (BCE) - First Temple, the national and spiritual center of the Jewish people, built in Jerusalem by King Solomon. c. 930 (BCE) - Divided kingdom: Judah and Israel 722-720 (BCE) - Israel crushed by Assyrians; 10 tribes exiled (Ten Lost Tribes). 586 (BCE) - Judah conquered by Babylonia; Jerusalem and First Temple destroyed; most Jews exiled.

691 (CE) - On site of First and Second Temples in Jerusalem, Dome of the Rock built by Caliph Abd el-Malik. 1099-1291 (CE) - Crusader domination (Latin Kingdom of Jerusalem) 1291-1516 (CE) - Mamluk rule 1517-1917 (CE) - Ottoman rule 1882-1903 (CE) - First Aliya (large-scale immigration), mainly from Russia. 1897 (CE) - First Zionist Congress convened by Theodor Herzl in Basel, Switzerland; Zionist Organization founded. 1904-14 (CE) - Second Aliya, mainly from Russia and Poland. 1909 (CE) - First kibbutz, Degania, and first modern all-Jewish city, Tel Aviv, founded.

teaching your kid to strap a bomb against their chest and commit suicide while murdering innocent people is much more like child abuse than being open-minded if you ask me. I think others here would concur.

I think a bigger communication problem is being blind (on purpose) to facts.

Could have fooled me.

Why don't you start then?

> A correction for Avraham:
> Jews != Israel

A Jew is a decendent of Avraham, Isac and Jacob on the father side, having a Jewish mother.
Conversion to Judaism is also possible, bud discouraged for reasons I will not get into here.

Jacob's name was changed by G-d to Israel - you can find it in the Torah - not that I expect or want you to read it.

> Sionists != Jews

1897 (CE) - First Zionist Congress convened by Theodor Herzl in Basel, Switzerland; Zionist Organization founded. Zionism was an international political movement that supported the reestablishment of a homeland for the Jewish People in the Land of Israel.

To clarify - I did not say they are not real Jews.

As for propaganda - see my previous points on the difference between facts and propaganda.

It is obvious that you are also against the war in Iraq and Afghanistan. The reason the US is fighting there is close to the reason why Israelis are fighting in Gaza - to ensure peace to their citizens. Should I remind you of 9-11?
