And this guy (a former college professor) is considered an informed American columnistlumnist

"In 1936, when the British administered Palestine, the Peel Commission concluded that there was "an irrepressible conflict" -- a phrase coined by an American historian to describe the U.S. Civil War -- "between two national communities within the narrow bounds of one small country." And: "Neither of the two national ideals permits" a combination "in the service of a single state." The commission recommended "a surgical operation" -- partition. What followed was the Arab Revolt of 1936 to 1939."  Look at this passage by George Will (a PhD in political theory from Princeton).  First the Peel Commission issued its report in 1937, and the Arab Revolt began prior to the report.  This only proves my theory: that in the US, you can say anything about the Middle East provided it is done from a pro-Israeli perspective.  Tell this Likudnik propagandist to get his facts straight at least.
