  1. In the end it becomes a question of “Is it worth it to DDOS a blog and hack the same to defend a state that does indefensible things?”

    [Note to “Trapper Jon”,the real character spelled it “John”, unless you think you are as funny as Jon Stewart. Best bet is to go to a john, stick your feet in, and flush yourself away.]

  2. Saying the Palestinian economy would be twice the size over 50 years is very conservative. it means Israeli rule only hit the economy by 1.39% every year. That number is probably higher.

    But, the graph above is completely bogus and out of context. Not only is make the break at 1973, six years after Israel won the war but the original article in which it appears (http://www.tau.ac.il/~danib/articles/ThreePathstoPrecipice.htm) which is written by a different professor, doesn’t even mentions the Palestinian. What he mentions is 80% of Ultra-Orthodox man and Arab women who do not work or seek to work and the fact that half of the children in 1st grade belong to those two sectors.

    HEre is a fun graph (http://www.indexmundi.com/facts/indicators/NY.GDP.PCAP.PP.CD/compare?country=il#country=au:cz:fr:de:ir:il:it:nz:es:gb:us) that show Israeli is doing just about as well as many other western countries, that is when so much is required to keep it safe.

    Maybe a chart from an article published about another subject in 2003 isn’t that relevant.
