Neville Nagler, of the self-styled Board of Deputies of British Jews, identifies the problem of the Middle East. It's the Arabs' fault. Yes, first there was al-Qaida, Hamas and Islamic Jihad (rising as they did in the 1980s) then the Zionist movement carried out an ethnic cleansing campaign against the Arabs of Palestine starting in November 1947 and first mooted in the 1890s, then they attacked Egypt in 1956, then they conquered the presently occupied territories (and more) in 1967, then the Arab states launched a counter attack in 1973, then Israel embarked on yet another genocidal campaign in 1982. And yet somehow all this happened because of the actions of Hamas, Islamic Jihad and al-Qaida. Remarkable! This isn't history repeating itself; it's history working in reverse. Fiendishly clever these Zionists.
