Kay's Commentary 2008-05-17

Download File Saturday 5-17-2008, 10:30 a.m. KSCO 1080 AM radio ? The following is a KSCO commentary. Here is Kay Zwerling: In the late 1920s when I was a child, I remember relatives and friends who yearned to go to live in the Holy Land. They went to the Middle East and purchased small plots of land from various Arabs who were happy to dispose of their arid property.Only after they saw that the Jews by creating drip irrigation, made their arid land blossom, those Arabs became envious, and tensions arose, and those tensions still exist, and will never go away. I was a young mother in my mid 20s when Israel became a State in 1948, and suddenly the surrounding Arab countries were joining together to annihilate Israel for becoming a recognized State. Israel urged those Arabs living peacefully among them to remain in their homes and be protected by the new State. But, their Arab brethren urged them to leave, assuring them that the Israeli Jews would easily be crushed, and the Arabs could then return to their homes victorious and safe. That never happened. Since they chose to leave Israel, Israel no longer wanted them back. So, what happened? Those displaced Arabs were not taken in by their Arab brethren who lived in large wealthy oil countries, and could easily have absorbed them. Instead, those Arab countries chose to keep the Israeli Arabs in camps indefinitely. Why? Specifically, to keep the displaced Arabs as political pawns, to make the world sorry for them, and to hate Israel and to admonish their displaced brethren to never accept the Palestinian State offered to them until Israel is destroyed. That was 60 years ago. They could have had their own country for the last 60 years. But, the stubborn Arabs still hope to throw Israel into the sea. That has not happened yet, but who knows? Surrounded by enemies, Israel is doomed to remain in a constant state of war. It is a shame. Israel is a tiny country, which can be traversed from north to south in eight hours, and east to west in three hours.Ideally the Arabs should accept their Palestine now. Next to Israel and both should live in peace and mutual respect, and the world will be much happier for it. P.S. - A few listeners called to remind me that I attributed last week’s commentary to the wrong Miller. It was a Larry Miller, not Dennis Miller. I Googled Larry Miller, and found a number of them, and learned that the original Larry Miller in 2002 never got credit for that Palestinian piece nor others of his writings. I?m sorry for that error. But the message was interesting, though the right Larry Miller should have received the credit, and the kudos for it. For KSCO and KOMY, this is Kay Zwerling.
