    There was never Arab rule in the area of modern Israel. Never. There was always Jewish presence. Always. "Palestine" was a name given by the ancient Greeks or Romans. Before the British Mandate, the Turks ruled in this area. In 1948 the UN approved a plan for two separate states for Jews and Arabs. The Arabs refused,and initiated war - as did Syria, Jordan and Egypt in 1967. Over 90% of Israelis would be willing to give back more (in addition to Sinai and Gaza) occupied territories - ie, occupied in 1967 - in exchange for peace. But terrorists like Hamas are not willing to consider the possibility that a Jewish state will exist at all. Add to that these two facts: 1. Moneys given to them are spent on ammunition, while their health and education organisations are falling apart; 2. The Hamas and other leaders don't give a damn how many Arab civilians are killed.

Why we don't know how to pick our leaders

Our craving for ideology means that we are partial to ideological leaders. But we need leaders who will make smart decisions that are aligned with the public interest.
