The Crux of Hate: "Give back territory and kill Arabs."

If you want to know why many Muslims distrust the US, you don't have to go too far. All you need to do is to look at the history of America's relationship with Israel. While the US bruits about the times that Palestinians and Iraq disregarded UN resolutions, the US has smoothed over the many times that Israel broke or completely flouted similar sanctions.

Indeed, a recent book provides historical insight into the planned and deliberate policy of Israel to break international law in its effort to expand its borders and to persecute the Palestinians. ...

Israel is now in the process of electing a new government after the semi-death of Ariel Sharon. The leading contender for Sharon's job is Ehud Olmert, an old-time protege of Sharon. Nothing best exemplifies Sharon's policies toward the Palestinains and arabs than the saying, "Give back territory and kill Arabs."

According to Haaretz, Olmert is staying true to Sharon's spirit by his recent actions in Palestine:

In 2000, when adman-strategist Reuven Adler and company reshaped and polished Sharon's image, a rule was made: The public likes leaders who show diplomatic moderation and military toughness, who return land and kill Arabs. Sharon followed the rule during his five-year reign, and his heir-apparent, Acting Prime Minister Ehud Olmert will do the same.
