'Take back the land'

What role did House Speaker Nancy Pelosi play in her unauthorized trip to the Mideast? Several days after her visit, 22 Arab countries have bullied the small state of Israel out of land that has belonged to the Israelis for 40 years.

If the Arab nations spent more time developing their own countries as aggressively as Israel has, with technology, agriculture, tourism, etc., they wouldn't need to spend their energy and time on pursuing someone else's property.

This they call a peace agreement? The Israelis believe that if the Democrats take control of the White House in 2008 they will lose even more land. It seems obvious the Democratic party is more supportive to and sympathetic of our enemies than of our friends. I hope the Israelis are prepared to take back the land that is being stolen from them.
