IS THIS ALL THE LEFT HAS REMAINING in its quiver of intellectual assaults on Israel? After sixty-two years of incessant conflict with these untenable Arabs who only flocked to this formerly barren land to harass, dominate, or exterminate the Jews as per their religion, this report offers nothing new, and yet the comments on this CBS News drip with enthusiastic aplomb for the bravery and courage of this allegedly blacked out story. What dribble!
Palestine has never existed as a nation. The region known as Palestine was ruled alternately by Rome, by Islamic and Christian crusaders, by the Ottoman Empire and, briefly, by the British after World War I. The British agreed to restore at least part of the land to the Jewish people as their ancestral homeland. It was never ruled by Arabs as a separate nation.
Meanwhile, this tiny nation has had to fight tooth and nail for its very existence for every single day since its inception in 1948, and with Iran threatening to wipe that name of Israel and its people right off the map, Hamas and Hezbollah in the full throes of a breeched childbirth, and world opinion against the only civilized nation in the midst of an Islamic horde with every attempt of Israelis to defend themselves, this situation is certainly not evaporating on its own accord. This arrow left the bow long ago.
