Maureen's Qote: unless Israel starts to show empathy, compassion and love toward her neighbors, she will be the cause of her own destruction"....... If the cause for the Arab-Israeli conflict is the "occupation" then why did the conflict rage throughout the years 48 to 67 unabated when there was no occupation?, Why was it that in mid-1967 just before the Six Days War, and before the West Bank and Gaza fell into Jewish hands that Arab leaders called for the destruction of Israel? What "occupation" was at issue? FOR THE 19 years that Jordan controlled the West Bank and Egypt the Gaza Strip, the Arabs had the opportunity of establishing another Palestinian state in those territories, and chose not to. Why not? If the conflict is about Palestinian statehood, then why was there no talk whatever of a Palestinian state for all those 19 years?
