The Arab-Israeli conflict: the Arabs are represented by eight separate nations, not including the Palestinians. There is only one Jewish nation which, by the way, is a democracy. The Arab nations initiated all five wars and lost. The PLO charter calls for the destruction of Israel. Under Jordanian rule, Jewish holy sites were desecrated and the Jews were denied access to worship. Under Israeli rule, all Muslim and Christian sites have been preserved and are accessible to all. Remember these things. I'm Cal Thomas in Washington.
