"the Palestinians` repeated failures to conquer Israel", says Jeff. Errr, when, exactly? The fight between Arabs and Jews Dec 47 to May 48 was a civil war over control of Mandate Palestine. Not an attempt to conquer Israel because, ya know, it didn't exist then. That civil war continued unabated after 14 May 48, but within a wider war between the new State of Israel and the Arab League. From the PALESTINIANS point of view there was nothing new - it was business as usual in a bloody civil war. 1967? Israel smote Egypt, Syria and Jordan. THAT "existential threat" didn't involve the Pals at all. 1973? Ditto, Jeff, minus Jordan. Can't see any other attempts to "conquer Israel". Terrorist attacks? Sure. Suicide bombing? Yep. But explain to me how a suicide bomber is attempting CONQUEST? Jeff, he/she is attempting matrydom, and in so doing hoping to affect Israeli policy. Because, you know, that's what terrorism is all about.
