    I can’t help but wonder if the people of Israel have ever contemplated what all this expanding is going to cost them in the end. The Arab community is maturing as a people. Collectively the Arabs are very rich, and as they move toward reconciliation with each other, they are going to become stronger as a united people. As time marches on their political movement is going to unite them in a way that will become a major force in the world. At this point in time the people are rejecting dictators, and are moving toward an Islamic version of democracy. At that time they are going to demand justice as they interpret justice. In the mind of Arabs, this fight didn’t start sixty years ago, it started millennia ago when the ancestors of present day Jews invaded their land with orders to kill every man, woman, and child. In the mind of the Arabs, that fight is not over. If the Jews want to settle with the Arabs they are going to have to eat a large piece of humble pie, become much more conciliatory, and become much more honest with themselves and the Arab community. It dose not matter how many immigrants Israel imports they will never have enough population to compete with a united Arab community. The only way Israel can survive is to admit the Arabs have a legitimate complaint and deal with it in a fair, reasonable, and intelligent way.
