"when osama bin ladin first admitted to the 9/11 atrocity he did not mention israel at all.he did not mention palestine at all.he said quite clearly that he attacked you because you america occupied the arabian peninsula with its holy places. i hope that helps." - Bethel "Admitting for the first time that he ordered the Sept. 11 attacks, bin Laden said he did so because of injustices against the Lebanese and Palestinians by Israel and the United States." http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,137095,00.html Very funny, Bethel.. Do you happen to be a fiction writer or just a dreamer? It seems the latter, as we see in your other comments. Just try to stick to the point. If the point is that the value of Israel is its humanity, the fact that Israel was more or less humane than the US is not relevant. If the point is that Egypt turned West, the question of whether or not it is a failed state is not relevant. Would this be of help to you? Me wonder.
