    What's your choice for Israel's Eastern border?

    Jews should stop treating Palestinians like dogs, or at least stop whining when they get bit.

    Moshe Dayan: we must tell Palestinian refugees in the territories the we have no solution, you shall continue to live like dogs, and whoever wishes may leave, and we shall see where that process leads.

    It leads to a racist, apartheid Jewish State ruling all the land of historical Israel.

    Chomsky, Failed States, p.191.

    I am not the right person to ask-----I am really BAD in geography. An interesting factoid-----women have a lot more problems in TOPOGRAPHY than do men----it is probably a function of the RIGHT PARIETAL LOBE of the brain-----my increased trouble besides the extra X chromosome might also be related to the fact that I am left handed. Problems with left/right disorientation are also related to the Right Parietal lobe I think that the Mediterranean sea has a clear relationship to the eastern border of Israel-----but I am not sure -----oh no----that is wrong----that is the western border. The Jordan river has some connection to the eastern border -----since JORDAN is supposed to be the TRANSJORDAN moiety of the erstwhile "palestine mandate" On the other hand-----a war created another line------called the TRUCE LINE where fighting was adjourned sometime in the late 1940s My sense is that nobody is going to ask me do you think YOU will be consulted?

    I think the Jordan was decided on by elite Jews about the time I was born, (1947) and, no, I don't expect to be consulted.

    BTW, when did you publish your first work of fiction?

    Jews invented the Jordan? I thought it has been there for THOUSANDS AND THOUSANDS OF YEARS--------there were jews in ancient times that went swimming in
    it------that is described in the bible -----a dip in the jordan was considered as good as a dip in ---one of those ritual baths MIKVEH-----in fact even better I actually thought that THE JORDAN preceded abraham's migration from------that place with the two rivers -------uhm MESOPOTAMIA

    So hamas should get a pass because they have lousy aim, and 2nd rate equipment?

    I believe Hamas gets a pass because they are the victims of an Occupying Power dedicated to "creeping annexation" and "creeping transfer" until they possess all the Land of Israel.

    What do you believe is Israel's Eastern border?
