They will vanish from the land

in response to reader comment: First war of a hypothetical soverign state of Palestine

Submitted by Melvin A. Fechter (United States), Jun 9, 2013 at 18:04

"I wonder if first war of a hypothetical sovereign state of Palestine will be against which country: 1) itself 2) Lebanon 3) Syria 4) Turkey 5) Iraq or 6) Iran?"

It's getting harder and harder to tell, isn't it? In 1948 when the U.N. offered the Palestinians a state, side by side with Israel in peace, they said, "No! No! No! We don't want a state unless we can have it all! There just can't be a Sovereign State of Israel!" Now they say they want a state so (read my lips) "So we will have a better shot at destroying Israel." Who are they really at war with? DESTINY! Slowly, slowly, slowly over hundreds of years they will vanish from the land.
