    Here is a question for all the haters of Israel who call this site home. What if the Arabs had accepted the 1947 UN resolution instead of invading Israel on the day that it was born? Israel would have had boundaries that were not viable, Jerusalem would be a city of peace for everybody, the Palestinians would have had a bigger country than that which some claim that they will now settle for, and there would be no Palestinian refugee problem. But, we all know the second act. Like Singapore, Israel would have developed a thriving economy and might have also developed a social structure that was the envy of the world. On the other hand, Palestine, like every other Arab country, would have degenerated into corruption, incompetence, and brutality. Sooner or later, radical Palestinian leaders would look across the green line and decide that the cause of their troubles was the Israelis not themselves. They would demand "stolen lands" and we would be where we now are.
