The need to preempt Iran and export gas to Egypt was the reason the government gave to push through its controversial plan for Israel's natural gas. Now, this reason may no longer exist.03:48 31.08.15 | 0 comments
...why the Arab world didn't want a Jewish state in Mandatory Palestine." Oh come on, there was only really one reason. They didn't want a Jewish state in Palestine because Palestine already had an established, non-Jewish, Arab population that existed in such numbers that a Jewish state could not possibly be created - even in the proposed partition boundaries of Jewish Palestine - except by dispossessing hundreds of thousands of people because they weren't Jewish. And oddly enough, the Arab states didn't see - still don't see - why other Arabs should be expelled or disenfranchised because of their failure to be Jewish. That's the heart of the Arab-Israeli conflict. No need to resort to conspiratorial mutterings about "the Caliphate".
