Sir: Your posts exude intelligence, understanding and a willingness for compromise so, please can you express your views on this: In 1967, Israel did not attack "Palestine or the Palestinians" Israel preemptorily defeated Egypt by killing its air force on the ground and, as you know, Egypt's army basically ran and Egypt lost control of Gaza to Israel. In the West Bank, King Hussein paid no attention to Israel's request to stay out of the war and shelled West Jerusalem. Israel then went in and wrested control of all of Jerusalen and the West Bank from Jordan. Israel "occupied" Jordanian and Egyptian controlled land and those nations immediately abandoned the Arabs of the West Bank and Gaza and, through the Arab League, refused to talk to Israel about anything.(The 3 No's of Khartoum). Dear Ibrahim: Do the Arabs bear ANY responsibility for the Occupation? Yes, or no?. Thank you, sir.
