day not-quite-country situated in and adjacent to Israel
. The area is currently involved
in a bloody struggle for independence from
Israel. Despite what the anti-Israeli Western media likes to say, the politics of the situation have almost
nothing to do with the Palestinian people themselves and everything to do with other Middle
Eastern states (and some power-mongering militants) trying
to get revenge on Israel for being owned
in the Six-day War (namely Egypt, Jordan and Syria, whom most coincidentally
lost the Palestinian territories during said war).
For years the Palestinian Authority, the main governing entity for the region, was run by Yasser Arafat, a wolf-in-sheeps-clothing who clandestinely sponsored terrorism against
Israel knowing full well
prevent the peace and independence he claimed
to desire. Of course, this is the same guy who turned down a perfectly good
peace agreement brokered
by the US and agreed to by Israel for no good
reason so it should be expected.
