Hi my dearest Jeedgr:
I do love your jokes; I did not know the first one. It is great.
Now, I said clearly that sociologists say, so this is NOT my original thinking. I learned that in school in a class called: "WHY WAR?" We spent discussing the factors in human nature, the politics etc, and he told us this rule. Interestingly, we spent so much time discussing the war of Vietnam, that when it was time for me to present the sequence of the Arab- Israeli conflict - he assigned this to me- the professor did not let me elaborate much.
This is a wonderful instance of person who was not acting in an antisemitic manner, but realistically we ran out of time to discuss this in depth. The Vietnam war was more interesting for the other students and near to them and before the draft was eliminated so, I understood why and never took it as antisemitism.
Hey! this is the key as to when see things realistically and when not! But yes, I would have preferred we would have time to go into my subject in greater depth.
. As for Golda Meir's Joke. We have a similar joke, I hope you don't know it: Moses stuttered and he said "Cccccnaaan," when he really meant Canada! Ouch....... did that hurt?
Seriously Israel is finding resources in the land, and in when we had the Sinai we did discover oil in Yamit. Yamit was dismantled when we gave the Sinai back in a Treaty. Yet, very few people know about it because the discovery of that oil was new and the peace destroyed the process of developing this further, and the Egyptians were not interested, or didn't have the resources to pursue it, but they have Taba as a resort in which now Mubarak is ensconced.
