A Scotsman, an Irishman and an Englishman go into a pub.  The Scotsman says, "I don't know about you Paddy but things are not great for us,"  Paddy replies "Things are terrible for us too right now."  The Englishman says "Yes, we have lots of problems too, I know, let's blame it on the Jews, it worked for the Germans."
Of course, today they don't only blame the Jews, but they also blame the Jewish State, Israel, that in perceived wisdom is uniquely evil and suppressive of the poor Palestinians.  Who are "they", they are the liberal-left intelligentsia and the lumpen proletariat, who are always complaining and seeking scapegoats for their ills.  Even though in the Syrian civil war some 400,000 people have been killed in an orgy of carnage, the Syrian Arabs don't make a good scapegoat.   Even though in the so-called Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, they have massacred and beheaded thousands of minorities, Christians, Kurds, Yazidis, Shia, their crimes against humanity pale (in the biased minds) against the crimes of the Israelis.  Its so ridiculous. 
Recently Israel wouldn't let the Palestinian Arab youths pray on our Temple Mount, where the Temples of David and Solomon stood, because they were rioting and throwing stones and petrol bombs at our people and the police.  But, even the US Secty of State Kerry applauded PM Netnyahu's allowing all Muslims to pray there at Friday prayers and there was no violence.  The fact is that despite all the incitement by the Palestine Authority leaders, including Mahmud Abbas, against Israel and the Jews, there has been no change to the status quo of the Temple Mount.  It has been and continues to be under the control of the Muslim religious authority the Wakf and under the jurisdiction of King Abdullah of Jordan.  Yet, Israel will be uniquely vilified, by those who in no way care about Islamic prayer.
Their mantra is that Israel is an apartheid, imperialist colonialist state.  My answer to all those who think that Israel's actions are causing these "problems," these riots, the so-called frustration of the Palestinian people (that strangely manifests itself in organized riots from time to time), is that nothing we do as Jews or Israelis can change this situation, we are blamed whether we do something or not.  Usually they focus on the building of some homes in Jerusalem, which is our capital.  My mantra is: we are here by right and we are here to stay, so get used to it.
