re: #34 Absalom, Absalom, Obdicut

One tiny problem.

All those nations are unstable.

Jordan is a three legged stool, with population being made up of roughly equal amounts Bedouin Descendants, Circassians, and Palestinians. Adding more Palestinians would upset the apple cart.

Lebanon is much the same way, except with Maronite Christians, Shias, and Sunnis. Syria is an unstable and collapsed mess, and has been for much of the 20th Century.

This is one thing that ticks me off. A total lack of awareness as to the nature of the nations around Israel, especially in regards to Jordan, Syria, and Lebanon.

In addition, with incidents like Deir Yassin, Al-Dawayima, and the purging of Ramla and Lydda put me in the independent column on this conflict.

And rosiee is an Anti-Arab and Anti-Muslim bigot.
