A Monument to Idiocy

Was on The O'Reilly Factor last night (Monday July 31). He was on O'Reilly's show trying to make the claim the fight between Israel and the Palestinians was race based because a larger percentage of the Palestinian people trace their ancestry to Africa.

What rubbish! When I was teaching in the UAE I had more Palestinian students who resembled Vikings than Africans. Of course, I had students from the African continent (Guinea, Somalia, some were local with Sudani ancestry, etc). But I never recall having a Palestinian student with African roots.
