Forty-seven years ago this September, a violent government bent on territorial domination and elimination of the Jews threatened open war against the British and French unless their demands for strategically-critical territory were met. Britain and France elected to cede the demanded territory in the hope of buying peace.
In the words of Winston Churchill, “[t]hey had to choose between war and dishonor. They chose dishonor; they will have war.”
As Churchill put it:
One pound was demanded at the pistol's point. When it was given, two pounds were demanded at the pistol's point. Finally, the dictator consented to take one pound, 17 shillings and sixpence, and the rest in promises of good will for the future.Now, another violent government bent on territorial domination and elimination of the Jews threatens open war against the Jewish state unless their demands for strategically-critical territory are met.
I think we all know how this ends.
