Israel happened. Get over it.
I'm not saying this as cheerleader, because there were bad things that
happened to resident Arabs during Israel's emergence, such as forcible
displacements and the like and there's a bit of Zionist arrogance towards
resident Arabs that's retrospectively upsetting, but Israel's a fact of life
and the sooner the Arab rejectionists get over it the better.
Turkey got over it didn't they? Sadat and King Husayn got over it didn't
they? Why can't the rest follow suit?
