    "The spoils of the Ottoman Empire after WW1 was free for all." (A. Zekaria) Very true. The only sensible sentence coming from you for a very long time. The spoils became again free for all by the end of the Mandat. You just put your finger on the actual motivation of the Arab autocrats of 1948, which was to divide between them the evacuated mandated territory. It had nothing to do with their alleged hate of the Jewish people. It just happened that we were there, claiming it for us. "According to Jewish Law, the Golan is part of Canaan which is holier than the parts east of the Jordan river." (A. Zekaria) Zekaria, try to think, for once. This claim of yours can at most explain why you believe the Golan should FIRST be declared permanent and rightful possession of Israel BEFORE it claims right on land east of the Jordan river, ON EXACTLY THE SAME BASIS. Fool is he who believes that Jewish Law can, one day, supersede, in the eyes of the entire world, the International Law. Only a brain-damaged Israeli PM would think of going to the General Assembly and try there to convince the Nations that the Security Council's Resolutions should be based, from now on, on Jewish Law. May God preserve us from such a calamity, a brain-damaged Prime Minister.
