    i: "total rubbish.we lost 2700 of our very young soldiers in october 1973.you do not know our history.in addition thousands were wounded." And did Golda Meir consider that bit o' biffo was even a remote possibility when: (a) Sadat said (1971) that he was willing to make peace under the Jarring Plan and (b) Golda Meir told him to piss off? Answer: No, she considered it utterly inconceivable that Sadat would do anything other than sulk in the corner. WHAMMER-JAMMER. BIFF. BANG. THUMP. After which Sadat returned with pretty much the same deal, and it **STILL** took all the arm-twisting that Carter could muster before Begin agreed to gave up those Sinai settlements. Slow learners, these Israelis. 2,700 dead, and every single one of them avoidable; all that was required was an Israeli PM who wasn't blinded by greed, stupidity, and thuggishness. Maybe one will come along one day.....
