They Don't Want Shiloh

For decades already, ever since the 1967 Six Days War, when Egypt, Syria and Jordan attacked Israel, Syria from the north, Egypt from the south, and Jordan from the east, with the explicit aim of sending us into "the sea," to the west, all we hear is that Israel must give back "all of the territories" it won while defending herself.

I live in an ancient city, Shiloh, in that Land. It was never an Arab city. Its only history is Jewish and written in the Bible.

The Arabs didn't declare war on us in 1967, because Israel was holding Judea and Samaria, becasue Israel didn't have any of that land. The Arabs wanted and want pre-Six Days War Israel, Jerusalem, Jaffa, Beersheva, the villages they hastily abandoned on which agricultural kibbutzim and moshavim were established, and Haifa.

They don't have streets named after Shiloh, but there is one in Iraq named after Haifa:
