No, I haven't peeked at it. But, I have peeked at that guy's hatred. I typically don't hold a high opinion of any religious beliefs or dogma, but I also don't get on with those who hate people for their affiliation with those kinds of superstitious beliefs.

Nothing, I was just looking at it from their perspective. Not that I care, but I see why they'd be afraid to go back to their original borders. They wouldn't exist anymore if they did.

This was a good read. I pulled my favorite paragraph out of it, too:

Netanyahu's Absurd Holocaust Mythology | Al Jazeera America

....
A flurry of satirical responses on social media have riffed on Netanyahu’s distorted revisionism. “Not many people know this, but initially, Eve only wanted to sniff the apple. But then, during a meeting with the Mufti of Jerusalem, Haj Amin al-Husseini, he convinced her to take a bite off of it,” wrote one Twitter user under the hashtag #MuftiSays. (The mufti no doubt also killed Kennedy and broke up the Beatles.) The meme rightly skewers the absurdity of Netanyahu’s historical fiction but misses the ideology underpinning it. The mufti Holocaust story is not just a pernicious but expedient fabrication to fuel hatred for Palestinians — and Netanyahu most likely wasn’t lying when he said it. He believes in the story, or at least, in the mythology of the story. Factual incorrectness is beside the point; it’s not difficult to find out that at least 33,000 Jews had been exterminated by SS mobile killing units before Hitler and the mufti met.
