Indeed, I live in England and say my mind wherever and whenever. Do not, please, pretend (self-servingly, of course) to know about the Palestinians? reaction to what may be said. What I really mean is that all the people of that land (be they Jewish, Christians, Muslims, Druze, and the such) have the full right to co-exist there. Not one has a more valid claim than the other ? that is exactly what I meant. Tony, like so many shortsighted and deluded others, you equate transitory dictation and dominance with right ? many have done so throughout history to no enduring avail. On the other hand, what you clearly imply by your contribution is that the Palestinians, who aspire to return to what they genuinely believe to be their ancestral homeland, will never accept the existence of Israel per se; if that is not what you meant, then what else could you be asserting to be the grounds for the Palestinians in not recognising ?Israel?s right to exist?? Enough of all this so damaging and destructive repartee, let us both recognise one other?s identity and collective aspirations, and thereafter see how best we can both resolve any difference (very little once we have reached such acknowledgment!).
