This is being discussed on a different thread, so I thought I'd post it here so's we don't ruin the discussion of the middle east.
As far as I can see, this is not a 'world' issue, but it is political.
It's also a disagreement between two groups of idiots who have much more in common than either would like to believe, like residency on a tiny island in the north sea.
Not that I can talk, I've got a foot in both camps. I speak the language, try to treat the local culture with respect, etc. but both of my parents are english, and I was born in England, which makes me an English immigrant in the eyes of the locals.
As an 'immigrant', you more or less expect to be treated with antipathy bordering on hatred. My family moved here during the worst excesses of the Thatcher era, and rightly or wrongly we are blamed for them. Despite the fact that my father and mother both voted labour.
I've tried to see this from the other point of view. Maybe this is a personal failing of mine, but I can't think my way into the skull of somebody who honestly thinks immigrants into his country should be banned from owning land.
If anybody cares, you could comment here.
