You've yet aswered the question, how do you explain the wars prior to 1967, when Israel did not occupy Palestine. was it racism then, was it because they were bullies....did they have any illigal settlements, inquiring minds want to know.
For a generation individuals and countries leaders and pundits of all stripes have been blaming Islamist violence, bombings and the like on Israel's existence, (or alternatively Americas expansionism.)
This past year or so, the Arab wold has torn itself apart over the brutal regimes in power.
thousands of Arabs have been killed by..Arabs.
When an Arab attacks another Arab it can no longer be construed by the media, the EU, as a result of there being a Jewish homeland. That no longer washes.
Is Israel ..the USA...guilty of that Arab spring..those insurrections ? The shooting of Arab civilians by Arab authorities?
It has come to pass that even Arabs have recognized the corruption and oppression by their leaders, nothing to do with Israel.
Tail wags dog.
Yet, we still have more words day after day about Israel's behavior, and few of the violence in Arabia..Arabs, shot in the streets by the thousands.
Leave Israel alone and there will be no military response.
Kick a hornet's nest and you might well expect a response.
Agree to Israel's existence and borders and there will be peace and a Palestine.
