Since the first 10,000 posts failed to provide answers to these basic questions maybe a second go around may yield better results.
If no answers can be found, it follows to what degree does these lack of answers reveal when attempting to unravel the current Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
so without further ado...
A series of questions made by a Japanese Journalist (of course not a western reporter) that deserves our consideration.
For those who are so sure that "Palestine", the country, goes back through most of recorded history", I expect you to be able to answer a few basic questions about that country of Palestine, and its respective citizen that demand so many rights and privileges...
When was it founded and by whom?
What were its borders?
What was its capital?
What were its major cities?
What constituted the basis of its economy?
What was its form of government?
Can you name at least one Palestinian leader before Arafat or the Grand Mufti?
Was Palestine ever recognized by a country whose existence, at that time or now, leaves no room for interpretation?
What was the language of the country of Palestine?
What was the name of its currency?
Choose any date in history and tell what was the approximate exchange rate of the Palestinian monetary unit against the US dollar, German mark, GB pound, Japanese yen, or Chinese yuan on that date?
And, finally, since there is no such country today, what caused its demise and when did it occur?
