Deborah, I am curious. To your knowledge how many times has Israel agreed to International proposals and agreements on the division of land in the middle east? And how many times have the arabs? If you knew the answer to these questions, if you had any clue as to the history of this conflict you would know that it was not Israel's choice to live by the sword as you suggest. In fact, Israel accepted balfours declaration, the arabs did not. Israel accepted UN partition, even though the international community did not live up to its word in balfour dec and gave Jews only a fraction of what they were supposed to get. The Arabs did not accept partition, instead choosing war. In 1967 who chose the sword? Israel who accepted the status quo of 48 or the arab countries who were massing armies on Israel's border telling arabs in Israel to move as the armies were about to attack? in 73, was it Israel who chose the sword? No. Get a clue Deborah before you choose to speak again.
