    Despite your friend,Gabe,not thinking I can actually think for myself you must understand that I do get my historical and sometimes hysterical information directly from him. In this case however,I think that when we look at the way the arabs are pained to recognize us,I mean even the Saudis who have many joint ventures with us jews and we both have common enemies and friends that they cannot openly accept us.It is not just the Saudis.I saw a BBC news program from Bahrain with someone from the Washington Post,and some Europeans and UAE journalists.They just cant bring themselves to say Israel even though they are threatened by many arabs and not Israel. The Palestinians speak with several tongues.Blaming Israel is a pastime and a sport as it takes blame away from those that could have changed things over all these years,their own leaders. We have done a lot.Let the arabs show good faith to Israel now.Let them drop a little of that false honour in favour of concilliation.
