I think you have too negative a view of Israel (I'm sure you think the same of my vision of the muslim world).
With both of us, it is what it is.
If the jews had wanted to be total asses, they would have leveled the al aqsa mosque when they had the chance.
They dont seem to have been having terrible relations with the muzzies at first (King Hussein giving a heads up on the up coming invasion)?
Golan heights and west bank are buffers. The Golan heights are a strategic location that can rain hell on a large portion of Israel.
They should have kept them.
When Israel won the Sinai during the war, they gave it back. They didnt have to. The ONLY reason I think it was a good thing they did was I believe
it was instrumental in the warming relations with Egypt.
Begin and Sadat were incredible men. Thats why the muzzies whacked Sadat. I used to know a girl that was an American exchange student who was there
when it went down. She said when the bullets started flying, the Egyptian soldiers were all over her and her friends, getting them on the ground.
Egypt was almost (once) like Ataturks Turkey.
How many times have the Israelis tried to go for the "two state" solution only for the PLO (or de jour bunch) saying "no".
When they were given the west bank and JEWS were kicked out by their own politicians, the palestinians (or muzzie 5th column) destroyed valuable
infrastructure that would have given them the means to be self-sufficiency.
I'll (for the sake of argument) say that the palestinians may want peace. The external forces working through them forbid this from happening.
The palestinians are being used as pawns by the muslim world to take out Israel.
I liken the palestinian question to that of a village.
You are on a recon.
You have a village that all of a sudden starts putting a lot of lead and HE on your position.
I wouldnt waste time wondering " who is good and who is bad".
I would level the bastards so my unit could fight another day.
The palestinians are the poor bastards that are infiltrated, propaganized, and generally screwed by their own.
Regardless, if you are shooting at my house from your side of the street, I will nail your doors shut and burn the walls down around your head.
Its all screwed up.
