    "The Palestinians did not wage war against Israel before 1967 ... Can you explain why you invent such things? .... The two Arab states allowed no Palestinian attacks on Israel. Are you lying?"(Ron) Quite a mouthful from you there Ron. I'll give you the benefit of the doubt and put it down to your ignorance on the subject. So let me give you a crash course on Middle East History: I'll ignore events like the 1929 massacre of Hebron's Jews by Palestinian Arabs. I'll also ignore the two Arab revolts during the British mandate, in which they murdered hundreds of Jews. I'll even ignore the rantings of the Mufti of Jerusalem Amin Al Husseini who collaborated with the Nazis and schemed with them to extend the final solution to the Jews of Palestine. I'll ignore all of that because all of that happened before Israel even existed. But I won't ignore the PLO and the Fedayeen. Here read about them and what they stood for : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Palestine_Liberation_Organization "..[the PLO] is a political and paramilitary organization founded in 1964..." "..Founded by a meeting of 422 Palestinian national figures in the West Bank, in May 1964, following an earlier decision of the Arab League, its goal was the liberation of Palestine through armed struggle..." So Ron, tell me this: Was 1964 before 1967, or NOT? And did guerilla attacks by armed Palestinian infiltrators (known as the Fedayeen) occurr against Israeli civilians between 1948 and 1967, or didn't they? Do me a favour Ron, go read up on the subject before you answer ...OK?
