    Dream on John boy, dream on..Of David winning from Goliath...Keep dreaming of a re-play of the 6-day-war, believe your own lie as to that war - like next one - being a 'defensive' war, enjoy acting as the righteous and clever victim (the Jew) winning from the oppressive and stupid offender (the Arab)... But when you are done with dreaming, do wake up to the truths of this real world: 1) The six-day war was the opposite of a defensive war: it was an offensive war totally initiated by Israel. The reasons & circumstances in which Israel won that war 44 years ago are absolutely invalid today... 2) Israelis are not the victim (like the blacks in ex -South Africa were), the Palestinians are. That is why the Israeli's have never been the friends of Nelson Mandela: they were the best friends of his oppressors... 3) In the sixties & seventies the Israelies (at least said to the world that they) only fought war to achieve peace. The problem is that the world believed them. In reality the only Israeli leader who SERIOUSLY attempted to achieve peace with the Palestinians after all those won wars was killed by an Israeli jew (who was nearly 'thanked' by the present Prime Minister)... 4) Not only the Israeli's have not shown any good intentions towards their Palestinian neighbours (continued settlement), worse still for their future in the region, they have never deployed any efforts to integrate with their neighbours (peace with some Arab Governments, not with the Arab People).. This all is not only little instructive, I fear it is indeed self-destructive.
