Myths are not

Myths are not compactable with the 21st century. It’s about time to do away with them as a basis for a government; yes I’m talking about religions. Some groups of people don’t want to join the 21st century so if they don’t leave them back 1000 years ago. If the world plans to move forward then some things or some people need to figure out where they want to be. Several groups tend to look at history rather twisted. Iran says that Germany didn’t go through a nationalism period, which drove the world into a world war. Some people learn by looking back at history while others need to be taught a lesson again and again such as Germany did the second time around. When the surrounding countries of Israel attacked them and Israel ended up with a lot of land, they gave most of it back except areas, which give them a buffer from attack. Last nights guest kept saying “Arabs” want this or want that but forget some countries signed treaties ending war. They found out it wasn’t in there best interest to continue fighting. I know the United States doesn’t have the best track record but when anything happens in the world, “the Arabs” blame Bush or the United States or and Israel. If “the Arabs” are so united why don’t they make a state sort of like the United Stated a union of states. They can’t because they’ve been fighting for thousands of years and don’t see that it’s not in their best interests. If they want to kill each other let them, just leave me out of it. Some time you have to learn to stand on your own two legs and find that war doesn’t solve a lot unless you count killing a lot of people. After all, World War II, which most people have forgot about killed more the 50 million people. If that’s what it takes then “push button diplomacy” maybe what is needed. Sure you could still get oil out of the ground wearing a anti-radiation suite, just a bit inconvenient and really doesn’t matter to me. If it bring peace to the world then lets go that route if the people want this and need to learn some history or become part of history.

Bob, I think there is more than a little evil on "both" sides:

'It is the duty of Israeli leaders to explain to public opinion, clearly and courageously, a certain number of facts that are forgotten with time. The first of these is that there is no Zionism, colonialization, or Jewish State without the eviction of the Arabs and the expropriation of their lands.'
-- Ariel Sharon, Israeli Foreign Minister, addressing a meeting of militants from the extreme right-wing Tsomet Party, Agence France Presse, November 15, 1998.

'Everybody has to move, run and grab as many (Palestinian) hilltops as they can to enlarge the (Jewish) settlements because everything we take now will stay ours...Everything we don't grab will go to them.'
-- Ariel Sharon, Israeli Foreign Minister, addressing a meeting of the Tsomet Party, Agence France Presse, Nov. 15, 1998.

'Israel may have the right to put others on trial, but certainly no one has the right to put the Jewish people and the State of Israel on trial.'
-- Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon, 25 March, 2001 quoted in BBC News Online
