Reader comment on item: Why Oslo's Hopes Turned to Dust

Submitted by Gershon Y. Perry, M.D., F.A.C.C. (United States), Sep 10, 2003 at 19:52

Well said Mr. Pipes.

How about promotion of the idea that what the Romans called "Palestine" has already been divided. Even Senator Kyl knows it and had it on his wesite about a year ago.

I do not undertand what the Hashamites are doing in "Trans Jordania" and why this family from Mecca is justified to govern over 38,000 sq. miles (Israel had 7.8 before giving some of the ARAVA to Jordan) and determine not only borders but also determine historical boundaries of the middle east when they are nothing but Bedouins from Hijaz, a minority in their own land.

Help me on this one Daniel....
