My mom was watching the Daily Show and apparently the king of Jordon was on and he said something about working for peace in the middle east by the 31st.
Is this legit? I have never heard of this before.

Peace in the middle east? Really? The end of the world really is coming! :o

Lol, anyway, don't count on there being peace there anytime soon. As long as Israel exists there won't be.

Thats actually exactly what she said that got my attention.

Yeah, but still, is this in any way legit? He said he put like a deadline and he thinks they care enough about the future generations that they will go back and say that its the best they could do and a compromise is better than war.
I doubt that's how it will actually play out, but is there any truth at all?
Only time will tell I guess.

I could get into the whole religious-y background as to why there's so much conflict there, but I doubt you want that. Muslims genuinely believe that the conflicts in the middle east won't cease until Jesus returns so in a way it's kinda like a prophecy. I'm sure The Old Testament speaks of it too.

Eh, I have a basic understanding. Basic enough to where if levels of knowlage where based on school standards I wouldn't pass 2nd grade, but still kinda basic.

Anyway I guess its best to kind of be optimistic, I mean this is the first time mom saw a middle eastern <especially leader> and say that she has some kind of respect for them and doesn't want to just bomb them.

It's not Anti-Israel, it's the reality of the situation. Most Islamic countries hate Israel.

lmfao. I saw them fight once. It was funny. He really does like to blame the muslims. Lol everyone blames <used to blame?> the jews, and they blame muslims.
Every state makes fun of arkansas for being the hick state, but they make fun of Oklahoma.
Everyone makes fun of the US for being dumb, and they make fun of Canada.

Guess it happens with everything :p

Maybe due to the white supremacy?

sure, but thats like saying "don't count on there being racial equality in the US unless all the black people disappear"

theres another option. racism (hatred of israel) could decrease. unless you are trying to blame israel for the violence.. which is what it sounded like to me.

The Palestinians are Semites too.

Technically yes, but somehow the term "Anti-Semitism" has come to mean hatred towards Jews exclusively.

Possibly. Abbas supposedly gave up on the construction freeze. (http://www.israelnationalnews.com...)

My new friend who wrote this article below told me its all a bunch of BS:
http://www.jpost.com...

They are an Arab "Palestinian".

They also said this on their facebook:
King Abduallah of Jordan's gift to Jews on Yom Kippur, one of his officals announced today that Jordan will be stripping away citizenships from Palestinians who are natives/born to Jerusalm, "in order to focre them to go back home where they belong in order to keep the Arab land"....YES this was officially in the papers, such a great friend Abduallah of Jordan is...

You mean well, but you got this backwards. Israel actually pacifies the Middle East—and the world at large—by distracting people from serious issues. If Israel disappeared tomorrow. There would be dozens of revolutions and wars across the Muslim world just as an hors d'oeuvre.

Ah the old "Arabs are semites too" card. Antisemitism refers to prejudice of Jews. AntiArabism refers to prejudice of Arabs.

Supposedly it was invented by a German guy that hated Jews and wanted to paint them as filthy Arabs. This was before Germany and Arabs were friends. :) Because of this association, some 100 years later, some dumbass Jew wrote a book claiming Jews were actually not descended from Semitic peoples...which led to a new way to delegitimize Israel by saying the Jews have absolutely no connection to the land because they were just a Turkish tribe that converted to Judaism.

(Im trying to illustrate the flips back and forth)

Anywho, my new friend Mudar Zahran says the only way to get peace is for the Arabs to go to Jordan—the real "Palestine"—and Israel is for Jews (and whatever minorities. Zahran says no Arabs should be in Israel, but I think loyal, friendly Arabs that bare no ill will should be welcomed. Jordan is actually 70% "palestinian" (some weird demographic Tangela that I cant understand) and is ruled by a bunch of "Saudis" called Hashemites.

Basically, the British gave Saudi Arabia to the Saudis and the Hashemites were like WTF and they were given rule over Jordan and Iraq. :|

Nah, they shouldn't be focusing on Israel at all, but more on groups of people who actually are oppressed such as the Kurds and various tribes in Africa. Hell, even the natives here in North America.

Oh that wasnt about Israel. That was Muslim actions and the essence of Islam in general. (in b4 Mirza)
