Your Argument Would be Stronger with Facts


With Rowsey and others you confuse the Israeli will to survive with arrogance. You characterize Davld Ben Gurion and others as extremist right wing leaders.
You write, "These billionaire, religious extremists have never been worried about "being pushed into the sea", since they have SEVERAL TIMES OVER more atomic weaponry, thanks to the AIPAC, than the entire Arab world combined.

I answer. There was never one 'billionaire' Israeli leader.
Fifteen [of 120] is the maximum number of seats in the Parliament ever held by a 'religious extremist' faction.
"Being pushed into the sea" was a definite possibility until the 1967 June War. [The Egyptians had more tanks than the Germans had when they invaded Russia.]
You confuse AIPAC with your FBI. Scores of Jewish scientists came to Israel to develop her nuclear capacity. The FBI through the US State Department sold US nuclear secrets to Turkey and Pakistan among others from 1996. This has been common knowledge since 2002. Why do you accuse AIPAC?

You open with four Arab falsehoods in less than a paragraph. This is not promising.
You claim, "The agenda is now and has always been to steal the entire State of Palestine." If this was Israel's objective, why did she wait until 1967 to occupy it and why did she withdraw from it in this century?

DNA evidence proves Jews inhabited Israel thousands of years ago. Jews share a Y-chromosome with Syrians and Palestinians. Rather than the 2% or 3% you claim, the Old Testament is the major part of the Holy Bible held sacred by over one billion Christians.

Finally, you suggest a two-state solution. The Palestinians have resisted this with seven wars since 1948.
"What continues to disgust the world community is why is this not enough???
Real world diplomacy would solve this stinking mess in two weeks."
Do you call 'real world diplomacy' what the USA did in Iraq?

You Are Comparing Apples to Oranges


Abba Eban once said. "The Arabs never miss an opportunity to miss an opportunity." The Palestinians reached their highest point in 1948. They should have accepted the two-state solution then, before 22 nations attacked the newborn State of Israel. Even then, the 22-nation force held every advantage and the experts expected a complete massacre of the Jews. Far from being the helpless "fish in a barrel" you describe, the Arabs held numerical and tactical superiority over the Jews at least until 1967. The 1973 Yom Kippur War was the last the Egyptians and the Jordanians signing peace treaties.
For 61 years the Palestinians held out for an impossible one-state solution [theirs alone]. They continue to plead to their fellows and to gullible Americans to kill all the Jews for them.
It might happen.
