BH BS: Bush's Speech II (105* d) RE: BS: Bush's Speech II 26 Sep 01


So much of the semantics used in any description of any person or event becomes loaded. Above was the comment"...Arab-Jewish problem". That denotes a religious aspect to something that should be considered political and perhaps a nationalistic issue. Arabs are not all Moslem--some are Christian. Many live in Israel and were asked to stay during the 1948 war that their brethren started to destroy the state that was mandated by the U.N and world opinion. I would add here that most of the land(then Palestine) was purchased legally from the inhabitants over many years. Many chose to leave at the urging of the aggressor nations with the promise of return. Some remained and are now citizens of Israel. Those who left ---the Palestinans as we now know them --were not then welcomed by the very parties who urged them to leave. Hence the tent camps, etc; And now the fruits of political war(s) are bearing their bitter fruit.

So, it cannot be put in religious terms. As to the terible events in NYC & DC---that has more to do with fanatical religious zealots who hate our way of life and our involvement in the Middle East--specfically Saudi Arabia.
