Palestinian recognition of Israel

Originally published 3/7/07:

This is a very good post from Lawrence of Cyberia on why asking the Palestinians to recognize Israel’s right to exist is like asking the the black South Africans to recognize the right of the Apartheid regime to exist.  He says:

“While every nation’s tragedies are unique, the fact is that the Palestinians are not the only people who have had their modern national consciousness shaped by catastrophe. African-Americans have been shaped by slavery, Jewish Israelis by the Holocaust, and present-day South Africans by apartheid. But Palestinians are the only people that are told they must recognize the “rightness” of the catastrophe that befell them. And we demand this because, in the U.S., Zionism is the prism through which we look at the Arab-Israeli conflict.”

    Hi, I think your site might be having browser compatibility issues.
    When I look at your blog site in Firefox, it looks fine but when
    opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping.
    I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other then that, amazing blog!

    The cancellation clause is an important part of your
    contract that gives both you and your insurer the
    right to cancel the policy within a short period of
    time after it has gone into effect. This add-on is also inexpensive as long as you
    don’t have a fleet of vehicles and will cost you around
    $2,000 annually for one to two vehicles and if you have over five,
    the premium will increase. Whiplash is the most common result of an automobile accident and this is especially so in a rear end collision.
