Respect for beliefs needed on each side

Success - Article sent! close

With all the talk about Israeli "occupation," I cannot help but wonder what the Arab countries would have been willing to "return" to Israel if they had been successful in driving the Jews into the sea as they declared they were going to do in 1948 when Israel was born and when Egypt attacked on Yom Kippur in 1967. They want and demand consideration for their religious beliefs and holidays but are not willing to respect others.
