Every country and culture on earth has some backwards, macho, military meathead trying to explain why something or someplace or some person is really 'theirs'. "Bulgarians feel an affinity to Macedonia because it all used to be Macedonia." "Macedonians are really just Bulgarians who supported Tito.", "Macedonia is really Greek, it's always been Greek", "Macedonia is the Illyrian people", "it has always been Albanian". Sound familiar? The same goes for Taiwan, Belgium, Poland, Anatolia, blah blah blah, and Israel. The problem all these places have in common is not imperialism, or religious bigotry, or assimilation, the problem is men. Macho, stupid, violent men with nothing better to do than ruin everything for the rest of us. Let's stop pretending that there's some logical, rational solution to their problem. I think the key to 'solving' the problems in Israel and Palestine is to carpet bomb the entire country with weed, beer, TVs and porn and keep the men occupied and sleepy.
