The Israeli Palestinian Problem
I did have one prominent 'My Daddy is bigger then Your Daddy' experience as a kid. Had a next door neighbor and whenever, his dad would play ball with us, he would insure that his boy got 'all the time' at bat and other disproportionate treatment. To me, the Israeli Arab or Palestinian conflict is similar. This is sure in that context. Condoleeza Rice is huffing and twittering from Jericho to Jerusalem; the main obstacle to the much demanded, prayed for, deal, cf. Tony Blair in recent post, is, well, "The sticking point is Hamas's refusal to recognize Israel's right to exist." Oh, well, minor detail. Could go either way, right, Arab Dad?
