Israel Deserves Better Treatment by Her Friends

Peace in the Middle East is a lofty goal.  Left to make it's own choices on the subject, Israel would have had Peace since 1950.  Instead, she was invaded from almost every border almost from the day the country was reconceived in the modern world.  In the end of several of these conflicts Israel, the defending victor, seized the lands of its aggressive neighbors, trying to build a buffer zone against new assaults. 

By all rights, these lands now belong to Israel and have for 44 years. 

There is a lot that has gone into the negotiations with the various factions that have sought Israel's distruction for the better part of the last 60 years, but one thing has stood out.  Israel has never been willing to give up that which it's sons and daughters died to win, that buffer zone. 

So, when Her closest ally on Friday suddenly changes position to support the idea of Israel going back to the 1967 borders, that is a slap in the face.  Expediency should not come before Right.  Appeasing terrorists should not replace Justice.  Shame on you, Mr. president.
