(Ynet) The European Union Foreign Policy Chief Javier Solana said following a meeting with Palestinian president Mahmoud Abbas in Ramallah Thursday that "the Palestinian people have suffered and suffered a lot, and it is time that the occupation that started in 1967 is over."
So, Javier... Let's remember how Israel ended up in the West Bank and East Jerusalem. In a nutshell, Arab lies put them there.
The Egyptians were decimated in the first hours of the Six-Day War yet they lied shamelessly to the Jordanians about their great "successes". This, among other things, caused the Jordanians to enter the war (despite Israel's urging that they stay out). Jordan's military was then crushed and Jordan lost East Jersualem and the West Bank.
If the Egyptians had just told the Jordanians the truth, the Palestinians would probably still be in East Jersusalem and the WB today. Imagine that. Now Palestinians can thank an Egyptian for that.
(JPost) Solana spoke of the need to reopen the crossing between Gaza and the outside world, which has been open for only 12 days in the past four months.
Yeah, never mind that as soon as it opens, Arabs immediately begin smuggling weapons and explosives from Gaza into the West Bank and Israel.
