How Low Will the United States and Israel Go
The Israeli people being closer to the facts of the reality on the ground are more divided as people and there is more debate within in their government and mass media. The American people being so far from the consequences of war are feed only the pro-Israel side of the conflicts and wars. Anytime you have the mixture of politics, religion and military with occupation such as you have in the Middle East today. It will always turn into warring conflicts of civilians against the occupiers. Nowhere in the world is this truer than in the Holy Land region, a land that has been under the occupation of foreigners for many centuries.
Israel’s Arab neighboring nations have agreed to recognize Israel within the 1967 International Recognized Border. This is 88% of the former homeland of the Palestinian people. The American right wing Jewish mantra is “No land for peace”. What other nation of people would agree to give up 88% of their homeland for peace as the Palestinian people? Maybe this is a question Vice President Cheney or Secretary Rumsfeld would like to answer.
