Google "Internet giant Google has changed the tagline on the homepage of its Palestinian edition from 'Palestinian Territories' to 'Palestine'. The change, introduced on 1 May, means google.ps now displays 'Palestine' in Arabic and English under Google's logo. Using the word Palestine is controversial for some. Israeli policy is that the borders of a Palestinian state are yet to be agreed." Good but daring move.

It was only destroyed by Rome after existing for 1,000 years.
Yet the more interesting fact is looking at who is around today of all these great empires yet Israel exists.


China still exists. We came before you and we're still here. And we did all this without being God's Chosen People.

I have a huge respect for the Jews, but people like you are giving your kind a bad name. You belittle your people's modern successes by pandering to ancient jingoism.

I don't understand why you think I insulted China. China never tried to destroy Israel or the Jews. My remarks were only about those who had conflict with Israel.

It doesn't matter. You make it seem like it is some kind of heroic feat to outlast those empires - as though you deserve it more because of it.
