:up: Especially the guilt part, IMO.Originally posted by infidel_kast:
1. They are Pro-Western and are not a secular government. Much easier to deal and negotitate with someone who doesn't have to consult a Bible, Torah, or Koran.
2. Lots of Israeli's lived in the US first, and have very powerful lobbies in the US, AIPAC, probably being the largest.
3. Stable government.
4. They have money to buy military weapons.
And lastly, guilt.

I know that I am.
It will require a full capitulation from both sides to solve this conflict. Yet neither will.
Unfortunately, I believe that this conflict will be at the core of the next major world war. I'm glad that I do not live anywhere near that area of the world.
