Jews may like to think they where exiles after the Romans conquered them, but that is just, imho, a selfish excuse

There you go with your insults again, intentional or not. In many ways, and here again, you keep denying Jewish history, Jewish aspirations, identity, and rights.

It the Palestinians can trace their roots to the Romans who conquered the Jews, they have as much 'right' to the lands as another conquer of those lands before or after.

Look at the difference here. The Palestinians can trace their roots. A statement of fact. Not may like to trace their roots - the phrase you used when refering to Jewish history.

Similar to what I've told stevenklein, I think you may be an anti-Semite whether you recognize and admit it or not. Think about it.
