If Israel’s borders wrong, so are all in Mideast

After the First World War, the Allies took control of what was the Ottoman Empire and broke it up into the current configuration that we see today. The Middle East was actually just Bedouins with very little central government control.

Virtually all of the borders of the modern Middle East countries (Syria, Lebanon, Iraq, Iran, Saudi Arabia, et al.) were created by the conquering Allies. At that time, there was a provision for a Jewish state and a Palestinian state.

The Jewish state was originally from the Mediterranean Sea to the Jordan River and called Israel. The Palestinian state was what is currently Jordan, but at that time was called Trans Jordan (across the river?).

Rather than be satisfied with almost 95 percent of the Middle East for the Arabs and a minute sliver of land for the Jews, the Arabs have made it a mission to eradicate the Jews from the earth. If the borders of Israel are unacceptable, then all of the rest of the Middle East borders should be unacceptable as well.

A quote from the Israeli Prime Minister Golda Meir: “We will only have peace with the Arabs when they love their children more than they hate us.”
