There is not one day that passes that I do not read about the chaotic state of the Arab / Muslim world. Whether it be a leader, a group , or individuals speaking out or physically hurting someone who does agree with them. They hate each other but save their purile hatred for the Jews and Israelis. In 1947 srael could have been given a 10 sq mile block of the Negev desert and the Arabs would have said no. The only reason the Palestinians are treated the way they are by Israel is because of human nature. If one is constantly on edge because of agression then one does all it can to defend itself and make the going tough on the opponent. That is what and where Israel is about.
