    Israel had a choice - it could have developed the Galilee and the Negev and built a strong predominantly Jewish state but instead it chose to build ILLEGAL settlements in OCCUPIED PALESTINIAN TERRITORY. Developing Israel itself would have enhanced its security situation and helped it to foster better relations with its Arab neighbours who were quite rightly wary of its expansionist and militaristic tendancies. Instead it chose to treat its Arab neighbours with contempt - believing them to be inferior, illegally occupying Palestinian, Lebanese, Syrian territory and perpetuating the falsehood that its primary interest is peace - it has always chosen land and disproportionate use of force over peaceful means of dispute resolution. Israel was born of the terrorism of the Irgun, Ledi, Stern Gang, Hagana... and it has chosen arrogance and terrorism to perpetuate its occupation of Arab territory and then it asks 'why don't they like us?' Blind support from the US may no longer be enough to save Israel from its disasterous policies - time for a reality check. Israel does not need the OPT for security - it has nuclear weapons. Continuing occupation and perpetuating hatred of the Arabs as in the racist teachings of certain Rabbis and Jerusalem Day's chants of 'death to Arabs' is the greatest threat to the state of Israel - deal with it.
