I'm just an American and I can see that. Illegal settlements... yeah, we Americans are saints when it comes to squatting on illegal land...never done that before. Not like it didn't work out. Also, it's not as if Persia was always as big as it was. Arab dynasties did their ugly work as well. Israel was attacked and beat back an enemy, winning fair and square. Palestinians can have peace, but the rest of anti-Israel nations don't want that.
