My friend, I appologize if for some reason you can not have your cake and eat it too.
The Zionists and Jews of the world can not be in lock step on the Palestinian issue regardless of whether they live in Canada, the United States,
England, Greece or Israel and not have not been in lock step of the politics regarding the Balfour Agreement.
You truly would have to read the Newspaper Archives to see how it all actually played out step by step to see how it all played out.
Have you read the Newspaper Archives from 1916 to 1942?
If you haven't we have an apples and oragnes argument going on my friend.
You are gleaning your information from one source (the victors) while I am gleaning my information for contemporary accounts as events went down (far
more accurate and revealing and much more detail oriented).
You have a sound bite version of history that plays towards your own politics and identity.
I have a more complete version of history that is just history. Who it favors is neither here nor there to me, it is what it is.
Those who fail to learn history's lessons are condemned to repeat them.
People who have a partial understanding of history have a partial understanding of what happened. There are things still out there to bite them on the
People who have an innacurate deliberately falsified for political purposes version of history are even in worse shape.
I am not responsible for events as they transpired, and ultimately many people who out of ego or political or religious identity or affiliation act as
if you were the culprit for events that transpired you played no hand in simply for not agreeing with their politicized, and religousized, sanitized
version of events.
If you haven't read everything there is to read in regards to the history I reject the notion that you have "read enough" to "know enough".
If you want me to pretend things that occured didn't occur for the sake of your own ego, politics or religion, please write that check out to:
Protoplasmic Traveler in the amount of 1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000.00 dollars
because real history is to priceless to abandon for peer pressure and politics.
Though that number would make me strongly consider it.
The New York Times amonst others keeps archives online of every newspaper published from about 1862 to today. They are photostats of the original
paper, not re-edited web pages. They contain history as it unfolds, not history as it is told.
I prefer the source friend.
Whether you think that's right or wrong makes no never mind to me.
Being civil and on point, and on topic does!
