Reader comment on item: Not Stealing Palestine but Purchasing Israel
in response to reader comment: "Implausible" doesn'tt mean "impossible"

I have the impression dear Janus that all we are doing here is arguing about DEFINITIONS. For you winning wars where the REALISTIC chances to win are close to negligible, is still in the realm of the NATURAL and POSSIBLE. For me, when such wars are won systematically and repeatedly, as a matter of routine, is WARS WON AGAINST REALITY.

Of course, post factum you can always find the "rational" factors behind the impossible.

Besides I think that I could agree with most of your standpoints except those stemming from some weird and original historiography of the Jews which is apparently popular in some circles but most of which is based mainly on speculations and is severely biased, and therefore untrue and misleading. .
