    "Jerusalem was majority Jewish for at least 150 years before 1948" (Tim R) This is not half the truth. This is the full truth, but also a truth totally irrelevant. Who was majority in any place for any time before any day - is inded totally irrelevant, perhaps not in your eyes, but most certainly in the eyes of International Law, as Serbia had to learn at great expense in Kosovo. "Kosovo is the cradle of the Serbian nation and culture, the home of its ancient Orthodox Christian monasteries. Serbs can legitimately trace over 1,400 years of presence in the region, ... " See www.slobodan-milosevic.org/news/dfasa110706.htm Today, with the help of the international community, Kosovo is a country independent from Serbia, and Milosevic infamously died in The Hague. So you see Tim R, I am not a propagandist. I just know a little bit of history. Go learn some, instead of propagating ideological fantasies. "Israel offered peace to the Arabs in 1948 and even after 1967 when there were no settlements yet." (Tim R) That's true too, and also that I ignored it. On purpose, because I firmly believe in the old Chinese proverb, "When it doesn't work once, try again." And again, and again. We have nothing to loose but our domination over a foreign and stateless people. Which anyway cannot last forever.
