All that is conquered in war is termed the property of the conquerors. - Aristotle, Politics. c.334-23 BC.
As Mr. Steyn pointed out today in a supurb piece (but without a reference to the Aristotle) this maxim is applied universally except for... the Jews.
As he pointed out, for instance, (to wit) "all the migrations of peoples and the changes of the borders in Europe are permanent, but Israel has to sue for the land it won a result of foolish wars started by the Arab countries against it."
Of the great many quotes you kindly supplied, PsyOp, this reverberated with Steyn's piece I just read.

I was thinking the same thing when I read through the quotes to check the code. I saved Steyn's piece and intend to add some quotes from it to my data-base.
