I like your articles very much and finally subscribed to your newsletter. One thing though I’d like to draw your attention to: the maps on your page are totally outdated!! Since July 2005 – almost a decade ago – the situation has changed dramatically and to the worse.

It would suit your site well to update this section so as to reflect the reality which is very very bleak!

Regards, Eleonora

Why is it so hard to find folks who are objective on this subject!?! Why not add to your graphic the reason Israel’s borders increased in ’49 (territory gained in defending it’s right to exist from an unprovoked invasion of their land) or at least show the border at the end of the Six Day war in 67 including all of Sinai peninsula and then shrinking back from that as Israel once again surrendered land they had gained on the battlefield.

There just doesn’t seem much hope for resolution if folks can’t even be honest with the facts….

Anon, you are so correct. I don’t understand why people are not objective on this subject. In the Bible Belt here in the U.S. where I live it’s all about Israel being our friend and Ally. I think I have gotten through to some people, but very few. I have sort of changed tactics lately with the Southern Baptist Bible Belt Christians and have pointed out that there are many Palestinian Arab Christians that have suffered and died as a result of Palestine. Maybe these Bible Belt Christians will at least stand up for them, but who knows.

That should read that there many Palestinian Arab Christians that have suffered and died as a result of Israel.

Palestine is a generic name for a region governed by the Ottoman Empire. There never was an independent nation state with that name. The two state solution proposed by the U.N. was rejected by the surrounding states who answered this peaceful proposal with guns blazing. If you get your information from a public bus in Canada, you aren’t getting the true story.

The real barrier to peace is the continuous militarization of Gaza, featuring missile attacks against civilians. Israel demands demilitarization as a condition of peaceful coexistence. This is rejected outright by Hamas, but this is the smartest idea on the table.

If you want to turn back the clock, take a look at how the borders of European states have changed in the last 100 years. The formula for peace is 1) Stop shooting, 2) Draw the borders, and 3) Celebrate the first Palestinian state in history.
