BH BS: On This Day Jews Rejoiced (80* d) RE: BS: On This Day Jews Rejoiced 17 May 02


Cute?! Stupid?! Take your pick from the usual anonymous "guest".

I would now give a brief history lesson---but you all might get bored. Suffice it to say---The Brits have not a clear conscience here, but the U N voted, land was purchased legally, the Arabs started a war (and refused their brethren entry into their "kingdoms"). They lost.

Today's issues come from a different persepective--but, asa with all history, it harkens back to the past.

Israel exists. Period. Once that can be recognized by the Palestinians and other non-welcoming to Palestinians Arabs --peace could come. Settlement removal should also be considered.

Then again----in history---how many times has anyone ever heard of the attacked party being victorious against all odds(3 or 4 times) and then giving up the victory?

Against all odds Rabin offered just that solution. He was murdered. Barak offered something close---Arafat made not counter proposal and left. So now we have the "hawks"---on both sides.

And let us not forget one thing---a number of years ago Israel made a premptive strike against Iraq
