Learn a bit of history, like a good lad.....
I did, and the Romans never expelled populations from conquered lands. They were also meticulous record keepers and there is no record of any such expulsion. We also know from the Roman records that Jews were leaving Palestine in large numbers for the large cities of the empire, where they could make large fortunes from money lending and slave trading. Yes, the Jews left Palestine of their own volition in search of profit. 2,000 years later, some of them decided they'd like to go back to Palestine. But, as usually happens when you leave a place for 2,000 years, that place had become home to other people. Of course, not all Jews left Palestine. Some did stay, and many of them converted to Islam in the 7th century - just as many Jews converted to Christianity in Europe.
If you had 1% of the historical knowledge that he has (or Swords) you'd be doing well!
The Jews never left.
Given the various slaughters they were subjected to, it is quite remarkable.
Since you're so interested, read up and learn the history of Jerusalem, for example.
This is another example of you reposting about extremists and suggesting it's the norm.
Some Jews did stay, as I said, but the great majority emigrated to the cities of the Roman empire where there was more money to be had.
The crimes just go on and on:
Legalising the annexation of Jerusalem
The cuttingband pasting of Al Jizzy keeps going aon and on and on and on
One of the previous cut and paste jobs of yoirs show Gazan Fishermen, after restrictions were eased, and they had a huge catch, you probably missed that as well.
A bit like the Irish emigrating to the US and UK, so.
He can be an incredible gobshyte sometimes but I really love Chris Hedges. He is a man of incredible integrity.
Soldiers of Israel
The Balfour Declaration’s many questions
"The issue is the 100 year-old persistent refusal of the Palestinian leadership to recognize a Jewish State at any boundary."
