Misused Term "Occupied Territories" Israel's Fault

On 22 May 1967, President Nasser addressed his pilots
at Bir Gafgafa airbase in Sinai:
"The Jews are threatening war – we say to them
ahlan wa-sahlan (welcome)!"[21]

Too bad we can't just turn back the clock, or do a gazillion "undos" until we get to that glorious moment when in June, 1967 we, the State of Israel, realized that we had defeated the three (actually four-- read  A Six Days War IDF Soldier Tells his Story) Arab armies which had allied together to destroy our precious and seemingly fragile young country.

That moment was a turning point, a watershed moment in Jewish and World History, and the State of Israel goofed.

Egypt Surrenders, 1967
We are still paying for that crucial and very stupid mistake.

Instead of accepting Gd's miracle and message, that we The Jewish People and The State of Israel as its tool is supposed to be fully sovereign over all of the Biblical Land of Israel, plus whatever additional Land came into our hands in this amazing war, the Eshkol Labor Leftist Government aimed for peace and conciliatory relations with the Arab countries.

Within hours of liberating Har Habayit, the Temple Mount, the symbolic key was given to the Moslems and we Jews made do with the much less holy Western Wall.

In addition, the Israeli Government only approved minimal "settlement" for civilians in the newly liberated Land, since it expected the Arabs to be happy to get it back in exchange for "peace." That was the invention of the concept "occupied territories," and we're paying the price for that awful decision to this day.

Well said. We cause our own problems then play the victim.

Spot on dear Batya! I believe we ourselves cause at least 1/2 of our own problems. (At least the part of Yidden who are in reality 'Eruv Rav,' and do all they can to work against our country's best interests.) Kol Ha'kavod! A short post that gets straight to the point!!

The second biggest, stupid move Israel and the VERY naive Jews ever made was in 1993, Oslo, on the White House lawn after the first biggest stupid move Israel made, instead of killing him, inviting ISLAMIC TERRORIST Yasser Arafat into Israel from Tunisia to kill Jews at will while playing peace man.

The most tragic of all of this is that Israel has yet to wake up from it's decades of incredible stupidity and still continues down the same suicidal path. Israel/Netanyahu continue to reward Palestinian terrorism, killing of Jews.
How insane and stupid is that ?

On another bloody note, has the Israeli media reported yet on Baton Rouge ? because we in America are headed for a bloody civil war and it won't take much to explode now.

Baton Rouge Bloody Red Stick over America's Head
