    Robin, Perhaps it is time recheck your own facts too. I believe the Arabs rejected the UN agreement (Partition) as they felt hey were being short changed by the Israelis. And it seems to me they were right. The Israelis should never have gotten 55% of the UN share of Palestine when their population at the time represented 30% in the region and the Arab's population in the region represented 70% and they only got 45%. How unfair. I imagine if you had been on the Arab side you would have boy -cotted the UN vote too? The UN should never have held the vote until the Arab's grievance was properly addressed. Now you and many others talk about fighting 5 wars against the Arabs but I question how many of them were instigated by the Israelis themselves? I know many people who were in- volved in the1967 admitted it wasn't a defensive war. Even, Begin admitted to attacking the Egyptian fleet first: "In June 1967 , we again had a choice. The Egyptian Army in concentration in the Sinai approaches do not prove that Nasser was really about to attack us. "We must be honest with our- selves . We decided to attack him." And Yitzak Rabin who was Israel`s chief of staff stated in an aarticle in Le Monde 2/28/68: "I don`t think Nasser wanted war. The two divisions he sent to the Sinai would not have been sufficient to launch an offensive war. He knew it and we knew it." Thus Robin perhaps it's about time you reckecked your own facts on the 5 wars for that matter too. Thanks, Dutch
