Palestinians and Iraq War

Tarbush’s proposition that “a country with less than 5 million people (Israel) brought 200 million Arabs to their knees” is fallacious. Israel did not defeat the Arabs: It was their greed and their unwillingness to live in peace with Westerners that has humbled (and from their point of view, humiliated) the Arab nations.

Another falsehood is the statement that the Israelis massacred Palestinians at the Sabra and Chatilla camps, when it was Arabs (albeit Christians) who committed those heinous crimes. He has also selectively forgotten that it is the Jordanians who killed more Palestinians than anyone else (recall Black September in which Jordanians murdered thousands of Palestinians).
