I'll show you a contemporary example of why Israel doesn't trust the Arabs... Israel withdrew from Gaza as an incentive for peace with the arabs... Rockets are still being fired into Israel, despite an agreement that hostilities would cease from Gaza... Neither you or I, although you pretend to, have the vaguest notion of why Israel didn't go along with the '71 "Offer"...In your mind 3 miles isn't very much, in a small country like Israel, it's a lot of territory...Before '67, at it's narrowest point, Israel was a mere ten miles distant from Jordan... Unlike yourself, I have been there, I doubt if you ever have or ever will be... Better yet, make the trip, then get back to me...Until you have done so, and can discuss it from hands on experience, let's remain out of touch... One thing I did notice from your mail, you neglected to mention where you're writing from.. Any reason for concealing it???
