old post new news What most people who support Israel, don't appear to understand, is that this is a Cultural/Religious/Land War. That is unlike your normal wars, it is an Irrepressible conflict that will prevent peace until one side completely conquers the other. The reason for this type of war-fare lies in the total cultural differences that cannot be reconciled by either party. Much like the situation today in Iraq or our-own American Civil War. The gap is too great for a permanent peace. It is to the Muslim Public a Foreign Occupation. Period. Oh sure we have the religious kooks who control Israeli and the Moslem hearts, who swear that some god chose others waiving a Bible or Koran that means nothing to the Industrialized world as though they are legal documents rather than one groups interpretation of who God really is. Primitive un-educated ideology! The Arab Nation in philosophy has existed throughout the last 14 hundred years. They see themselves as one, and someone like Osama bin Laden was in essence created as a leader of not only the Arab Nation but of the larger Muslim Nation. The 2011 Arab rage and the beginning of the overthrow of the virtual Dictators is proof of this idea in practice. The Palestinian cause via Osama has become a Muslim cause. Even Saddam used these phrases to portray himself as an Arab Hero. If America kills him he will be made a Martyr. The same if they get Osama. It will further unite this cause. Israel's insistence of annexing the third holiest site in Islam and controlling it has sealed its fate by challenging all of Islam. It will eventually be slowly ground to death like all previous invaders. History has shown through the Christian Crusades that when the Arabs United they always defeated the Western armies, most recently Britain's by relentless grinding. The tremendous advantage in man-power insures a future victory because this relentless grinding. 1.7 BILLION souls against 5-6 million Israelis. Sure Israel is a bully today but she does not have the numbers to occupy the region. That's why they left Gaza and most of the West Bank. It has become a fortress under constant siege. That is what Israel has brought upon itself when it went beyond the relatively peaceful pre-67 borders. It may take hundreds of years of grinding and in the end the invaders like all others before them will just pick up and leave or be slowly ground to death.
