Hey Joe Bruno welcome to the fray! You have already started to meet the regulars here, especially P F Tinmore. He seems to have a lot of one word and one line answers, he'll imply you're ignorant, post the same 2 hour long youtube videos over and over and over and over and over again and again and again, but when you get him to actually explain, his logic in this argument is like the most twisted pretzel ever. There used to be another Monti who has the same M.O. but with different links. then you'll find those that are down right nasty about it like Fanger and a couple others. But it sums up like this. A Pasha in the Ottoman empire decided to enter WWI. the Ottoman's lost. Much of their former territory was split between the French and the British, and that mean all claims transferred. For Britain's part, they knew they were going to win and made promises to both the Jews and the Arabs of the area; for independent states within the area known as Palestine. After the spoils of war went to Britain, they kept their promise to the Arabs by splitting off 70% for the Arabs in the form of Jordan. The Arabs couldn't have just that, they wanted it all so they started causing the British so much trouble that they started to renege on their deal with the Jews. Well that pissed the jews off and so the Arabs and the Jews were fighting each other and the British too. Britain finally had enough and left. The U.N. decided to split what was left of the area known as Palestine again andthe Jews said O.K. and the immediately declared independence creating their own NATION. The Arabs again stomped their petty little feet and tried to do something about it, lol. And they've been trying ever since. And failing every time. I don't see them ever getting their way unless they decide on peace instead of their hatred of the Jews. Hell, way back at the beginning of my story, there were actually some Arabs that welcomed the Jews back, realizing it was their ancestral homeland.
