So the more we appease the Arabs, the more rejectionist they become? Wow...what a theory. No matter it flies in the face of reality. A reality full known to Obama as his administration conducts ongoing talks with nations from the Arab/Muslim world. There is a chance for peace now, and Israel is the party holding it up. An objective review of the facts leads us to this conclusion, not a regurgitation of AIPAC talking points. Now, perhaps a more important trend to think about is the sad fact that every major Israeli withdrawal from occupied territories occured after Israel first sustained significant casualities from violence. Sinia occured shortly after the 1973 war. Lebanon occurred after a long war of attrition that saw about 1 Israeli casuality per month for a number of years. Gaza occurred only after Sharon concluded they would indeed NOT be pacified in thier subservient position... Let's change that trend, cousin.
