arma virumque cano (et alia)
1. Israel was formed through the actions of the people who built the nation. The United Nations vote was irrelevant.2. Let's recall that when the pirate, Arafat, was offered a deal by Barak in the waning days of the Clinton administration. What did Arafat do? He refused to negotiate. He refused to make a counteroffer. He told his people to fight again.3. Massive retaliation happens when the Palestinians chuck missiles at Israel. If the Palestinians didn't shoot missiles, they'd have more room to complain.
The fact is that once again, it was Israel who broke the truce and then the trouble began.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1ayD_rm1Vls&feature=player_embeddedorlin sellers
