    I think Europe & America have been trying to get them to drop that meme
    since 1948. Before that, the British found them all a pain in the *ss, as
    did the Turks, as did the Saracens, Romans, Greeks, Egyptians......of course
    pre 20th century you were allow to solve this lot with a good pogrom every
    so often.
