    I write from the USA, same as you. I am Jewish, same as you. You want to know what borders should be? I believe that the borders should be on the 1967 line. You won't like my answer because you probably believe that Israel is entitled to as much land as it can grab but that is my answer. You've also got your history wrong. Nasser did not attack first in '67. Israel attacked with a premptive strike that eliminated the entire Egyptian air force as it sat on the ground. Had Egypt actually been planning an attack it is unlikely that they would have left their planes as exposed as they did. In '48 the Arab armies, not nearly as powerful as you would like to believe, came in to protect from the invading Jewish army, the area of Palestine that the UN had allocated to the Palestinian Arabs. In '73 Israel was attacked by Egypt and Syria in an attempt to get their lands back. If their attack was a Japanese style SNEAK ATTACK then so was Israel's attack on Lebanon in 1982 or in other years.
