    "The only internationally recognized borders are really those of 1948." Nope. The 1948 boundaries are just cease-fire lines, negotiated by the brilliant Dr. Ralph Bunche. The Israel-Lebanon border is the 1922 boundary between the French Mandate and the British Mandate, and PM Siniora of Lebanon--a key figure--has said he doesn't recognize it as valid (w/regard to Shaba, etc.), though the UN does. "Everybody, even Hamas, is willing to accept Israel if and when they have withdrawn into those borders." Rubbish. Hamas has said repeatedly it cannot accept Israel existing anywhere. "It justifies Israel`s aggression against an unarmed people who heroically fights against occupation of their land with their own body." "people"--Rashid Khalidi acknowledges that the masses of Arabs did not view themselves as the "Palestinian people" till the 1920s. Danny Rubenstein finds evidence it did not get really accepted among Arabs till the 1950s. Try Khalidi's _Palestinian Identity_....

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.
