I suggest to you that what Crown Prince Abdullah talked about a few days ago was not new at all.He talked about the fact that under the Abdullah plan, Arabs would normalize relations with Israel in exchange for the Jewish state surrendering the territory it received after the Six Day War, as if that were something new...From that day these words became the official and unspoken policy of the Zionist movement and later the state of Israel.Settlements were used from the beginning to create a Zionist foothold in Palestine.It was like having your wacky uncle interrupt an armpit fart to tell you about the time he saw a dead body and that's why he drinks." An episode, often in a sitcom, in which the lead confronts some highly emotional or forbidden issue from everyday life. At the end of the episode, the protagonist is Enlightened, and the guest character with the Very Special Problem is never seen or heard from again.Often there is an 800 number to call, should you (or someone you love) actually have the Very Special Problem.If this is something that Israel wants to do, it is their business to do it.But anyone who has tried to put the pressure on Israel to do this is wrong.
I was kind of shocked that it was so well received by many people who had been down this road before.
Another key criteria is that side-effect, complications, or failure-rates of the official government mandated Very Special Solution the episode promotes are never mentioned.
If the problem involves children in some way (and it almost invariably ), then it may also be promoted as something that "No Parent Should Miss".
[But] there isn't anything new about the prospect of giving up land that is rightfully Israel's land in order to have peace.
When it gets right down to it, the land doesn't make that much difference, because Yasser Arafat and others don't recognize Israel's right to any of the land. I will discuss seven reasons why Israel is entitled to the land they have and that it should not be a part of the peace process.
