Who is the underdog?

Reader comment on item: Arabs, Israelis, and Underdogs

Israel remains the underdog.

Why should the Palestinians have one and one half or 2 states and Israel have no state or only 3/4 of a state.

The whole world knows that Jordan is 80% made of Palestinians and Israel has close to 25% of Palestinians.

The first issue is that the majority of people who are brainwashed are simultaneously IGNORANT.

The second issue is that the ignorant remains ignorant until they are personally at risk and then it is too late and it becomes very expensive to defend oneself.

WW II is a good example.

History repeats itself because of people's passivity.
