I wasn’t even 10 years old when in 1978 Benjamin Netanyahu, then known as Benjamin Nitay, was opposing the creation of a new palestinian state. His argument was that there was already a Palestinian state called Jordan, and if they really wanted a Palestinian state they would have been advocating for that instead of the destruction of the Jewish state.

This Netanyahu made a lot of sense:

    “I wasn’t even 10 years old when in 1978″

    Geez, I still remember Golda Meir – IMAO the best leader in Israel’s history. Favorite Meir quote: “The Egyptians could run back to Egypt, the Syrians back to Syria. The only place we could run was into the sea, and before we did that we may as well fight.”

    Ah, the perpetual semantic battle over the “Promised Land”…Islam and Judaism both see Abraham as the father of their faith – and Abraham’s God is the same God as Allah. Abe’s first son was Ishmael – born by his wife Sarah’s slave, Hagar. Later, Sarah had Isaac – who recieved the blessing and promise. Muslims claim Mohommad is a direct descendent of Ishmael – and as firstborn of Abe – heir to the promise. This thing is thousands of years old, and there is no real prospect of a solution in sight – but, ya know, Hillary has this spiffy new “Smart Power” detante thingy that “will bring lasting peace to the Middle East in a year.” Ain’t that special? 2000 years of implacable conflict tidied up by Mrs C in time for Christmas! Clue to Clinton. Come in please.

    BTW, how does Hillary stack up with other notable stateswomen? Let’s see:

    Golda Meir: “Ability hits the mark where presumption overshoots and diffidence falls short.”

    Indira Gandhi: “A nation’ s strength ultimately consists in what it can do on its own, and not in what it can borrow from others.”

    Margaret Thatcher: “Being powerful is like being a lady. If you have to tell people you are, you aren’t.”

    Hillary Rodham Clinton: “Does the aqua pant-suit make my butt look big?”

    OK, I made up the last one – but you know she said it.

    The real issue is they are upset that land was stolen by the UN and given to create a jewish state. Over 60 years of conflict brought to you by the UN.

    • http://twitter.com/TJexcite Trevor Johansen

      More like 1400 years of conflict brought to you by a guy named Moe. Hatred of Jews is older than time and will not go away any time soon. If Israel was given and moves to Utah, the hatred will follow. Land is nothing when hatred of ones existence is more important.

      • Stephen

        You’re missing the point Trevor. The real estate is EVERYTHING. Both the Muslims and Jews believe Israel was promised to them by God/Allah. The land IS THE REASON they’re hated. Palistinians wouldn’t give a flip about Jews if they lived in Utah. BTW Moses messed up and never crossed the Jordan. It was the next generation that moved into Canaan. The original promise was made to “the seed of Abraham” – Genesis 17.

        Troy, even if the Bible were false – which it is NOT – the Jews have at least as valid a claim to Israel as the Palistinians or Muslims – in fact it is a God given right according to the Bible. But when they got it back in ’47, there is one super important piece of real estate they didn’t get back, mount Zion. Where Solomon’s Temple once stood now stands the “Dome of the Rock” – the holiest site of Islam, second only to Mecca. Drives the Jews nuts. If the Jews ever tried to take it back, fasten your seatbelt – it would be WW III.

          If it was all about land then why once they have it back ie Gaza do they still continue the murderous rocket attack on children. The hated to the Jewish people is much more than just having a country. It is their simple existence that the Muslims hates them.

        You got that right, the Jews could live on the moon and muslims would still hate them. Have you seen the video of them going after the Pope? It’s vile.

        Ben kicked butt!

        Check out the collars on those shirts….LOL! Disco Baby, let’s do the hustle.

      Actually it predates the UN, try going back a bit further. This “modern” dispute has its roots in the League of Nations,they were dealing with the administration of the territories of the defeated Ottoman Empire.

      wait, who did they steal the land from…the british?

      • Paulchri

        Didn’t the Jews take it from the original inhabitants in Moses’ day? Then Babylon kicked them out, then they were allowed to go back. Then the Romans ruled over them and eventually cast them out. Then the League of Nations gave it back in the late teens, but they didn’t occupy it until the UN gave it back in 1948, then they finally took control of Jerusalem in 1967. Bla, bla, bla. The fact is they are there to stay, and will fight a battle against the world to keep it. Since I believe Bible prophesy, I know that they won’t have a peace agreement until the tribulation period. It won’t last long, because the anti-Christ will proclaim to be God in the new temple, and it will all fall apart.

        I thought it was pointless as Clinton rushed to get an agreement before he left office, and I continued to think so when Bush came out with the “road Map”. The guy who gets the peace agreement is going to be a bad dude.

        Just a little future history for those who don’t know.
