Secretary of State Clinton was asked by an Arab reporter why Israel did not respond to American requests to be more giving in the peace process. She said people react with past experiences in mind. Israel withdrew from Gaza. What did they get in response? Hamas and 40,000 rockets. They withdrew from Lebanon and what did they get? Hezbollah and 20,000 rockets. Very good statement. Kalam--It seems everytime you don't like where an argument is going, then you call it "Zionist talking points and propoganda". Well, I call your arguments "Arab talking points and propoganda". And, as I told you before, "stereotypes" come from someplace, not out of thin air. You continually call references to the suicide bombings "stereotyping". But are you denying they ever happened? My friend who was visiting Israel was very nearly in one of them, and so was a cousin of mine. What country would not safeguard its citizens? Also Kalam, this is a message board, not a Master's thesis or a term paper. Citations aren't always needed.
