"Considering conversion"??? Would that mean that if I were to convert to Judaism that I TOO would have a US government endorsed and empowered (though US taxes) believe that I too would have a birthright of murderous theft of Palestinian lands???

Never going to happen!!!

There is nothing in the entire universe that could convince me that I have a birthright to be a murderous thief of ANYONE'S homeland. Even if other Jews (Hebrews who once long ago slaughtered and enslaved the Cananite) to steal said land.

I would have to be 100% evil to believe or even convince YOU to believe that Hebrews slaughtering and enslaving (and that includes raping) Cananites would give Zionists a birthright of murderous theft of even 1 single grain of sand in Palestine.

Chose which side you stand. I can not do that for you.
