Not Exactly a Huge Accomplishment, Ya Sayyed AbdulKarim

in response to reader comment: Short term memory loss

Opening a "mission" or trade "office" almost 60 years after Israel's founding--and with the intention of wooing US protection and investment rather than a civilized understanding of the need to accept and live in peace Israel--is no great gift that an Arab country can give. You were not being pushed into tolerating something odious or evil, but barely approaching something good and necessary. Set higher standards for yourself and your people, and you will achieve the democracy that Israel wants to share with you.
