Modern M-E History, 101

It happened in May, 1948 Israel declared itself a new-old state In hours it came under fierce attack From Egypt, Jordan, Syria and Iraq The four Arab states told their kin in Israel Leave your homes, come to us. Here's the deal: In three weeks or less, we'll push the Jews into the Sea Then you'll return to your homes in triumphant victory But little Israel turned the Arab attackers away So what did Egypt and Jordan do within days? They fenced their 'Arab brothers' in squalid refugee camps Then blamed Israel(!) for causing them their murderous plans to 'revamp' This is what happened. Read about it in the media of that day If so, why do so many people support the PA?* -- Because the Arabs have lied about the refugees for so many years That the truth has become sullied and is no longer clear History will show that Israel is not to blame The onus is on the Arabs, along with the shame ______________________________________________________ The PA are the Palestinian Arabs. Alternatively PA is the Palestinian Authority, the self-governing entity of President Mahmoud Abbas in the Gaza Strip.

After the Six-Day War, I recommended the USA dump our military and just hire the Israelis when a job needed doing .....

We could have prevented a lot of deaths had we even adopted their methods of uncovering terrorists in airports. Thanks, Rico. :) gw

Well said Gershon, people should study history and the facts. As I said before any one firing rockets at a country can expect a response. Tom

I guess it's a 'wake-up' for the 'woke' that if you fire a 'wocket' you are 'wesponsible!' ~ Wolf, Wolf
