Palestine and Israel debate on Al Jazeera

There was a very interesting discussion on Al Jazeera last night on Palestine and Israel, in light of current discussions in the EU. If you follow this link, you can watch the lively discussion and then read Ahmed's interesting views of the debate.

An excerpt:

...argues implicitly that the ethnic cleansing of Palestinians is permissible because “you the Bedouins are new in this country. You don’t belong in this country this is why this country rejected you.” Again, I’m not interested in disputing Mr. Kedar’s historical claim; the moral point is much more interesting. I will risk alienating the reader with a Nazi analogy. Imagine: “You the Jews are new in this country. You don’t belong in this country this is why this country rejected you.” History’s cruel irony is truly something to behold.
