Thank you. Give it all back to the Ottomans, and let them deal with the Arabs. I hadn't realized how much the Arabs were beholden to the British for their self-rule. Their gratitude lasted, what, one day?
* Alan, it is exactly the Ottoman dealing with the Arabs which made them switch sides during WW1. Take a look at "The Memoirs of Sir Tahsin Kadry", book at Amazon, you will learn a lot.
* I wonder if the Israeli policy toward the "Arabs" carries the same perception. Israel is the new Ottomans..hmm..
* I have a problem with your logic, so India must be grateful to the Brits for their self-rule? How much is Israel grateful to the Brits? Is the U.S. grateful?. Alan, I don't share your sense of reality.
thanks dear for this great article
