Manufacturing history

Reader comment on item: Assessing Obama's Cairo Speech

Submitted by Pauli (Canada), Jun 4, 2009 at 12:56

Did anybody hear about the Palestinian nation before ? When the UN divided Palestine for the two future countries, why didn't they start building? Before 1967 they had Jordan, Dyria, Egypt on the territory which they now claim. Why did they not claim it then instead of bombing, hijacking planes, suicide-bombing.

In Europe, several millions have been displaced following WWII. Nobody lives in refugee camps. But they aren't getting European and American money to buy guns and missiles. They could have settled just in the places vacated by the Jews.

Now Obama is manufacturing a new history for the past which isn't closer to what really happened than the propaganda of Hamas, Hezbolla and the the rest of the radicals.
