Re: Potpourri (8/14/2006)

I sympathize with your frustration with anonymous! It makes me crazy to hear exactly the same chestnut from my television, my radio, my family reunion, my friends: "Well, they've been fighting for thousands of
years..."

But they haven't! They just haven't! Obviously, there has been conflict in the Mideast over the centuries, just as there has been in N. America (Witness: First Nations v. other First Nations. European genocide of First Nations. Racial conflicts in Canada, U.S., Mexico., &c, &c.). But the violence of Muslim v. Jew is really a curiosity of the second half of the 20th Century. Thanks for speaking out!
