    Israeli Professor Nails It: Obama was Right when he said America is not a Christian Country

    Republican Riot : Wake me up when Obama is bombing Israel. That’s what I told my husband the night Obama won the presidency. I essentially tuned out of politics that day, having little interest in charting every step along the path to the destruction that we non-Obama voters predicted.

    Of course, I thought I was yet engaging in hyperbole, but the conclusion to be drawn from this remarkable article by Middle East Studies professor Mordechai Nisan, of Hebrew University of Jerusalem: “As for the Jews, when American jet bombers will zoom over the Galilee, Israel shouldn’t assume they are there to save her from the Arabs and Iranians”

    Commentary: U.S. Has Long Sided with Arab World

    By: By Mordechai Nisan

    On three formidable major speech-making occasions since his election – in Ankara, Cairo, and Washington – President Obama stated that America ‘is not and never will be at war with Islam’.

    This definitive affirmation ignores the fact that America has been at war with Christians who are at war with Muslims, while the United States has accepted the defeat and death of Christians at the hands of Muslims. Obama actually gave voice to what has been characteristic of U.S. policy in religiously-defined conflicts, for American-Islamic compatibility was a pillar in Washington’s conduct long before Obama made it central to the American political creed.

    The history of America’s special relationship with Saudi Arabia, the heart of Islam and its global campaign to reach and preach in the four corners of the world, is well-documented and central in the strategic calculations of the United States for over 70 years. Incorporating Turkey into the NATO alliance in 1952 was also a step toward U.S.-Muslim consolidation, as is the decades-long alliance with Pakistan.

    But our concern here is a particular aspect of Washington’s pro-Muslim inclination involving Muslim-Christian rivalries and America’s decision of supporting the Muslim side.

    The swath of territory running from south-eastern Europe across Asia Minor and toward the eastern Mediterranean basin was historically conquered and ruled by the Turkish Ottoman Empire for many centuries until WWI. A state system emerged, peoples dotted the map, and Western hegemony dominated the political arena. Islam as a religious-political concept appeared to have been replaced by nationalism and secularism, but it never really collapsed; it mutated, radicalized and politicized, and reasserted the ‘Green Belt’ momentum with American consent and cooperation.

    *****

    We can capture the pattern of U.S. policy in areas which Samuel Huntington aptly labeled “Islam’s bloody borders” by drawing upon four illuminating political cases that confirm President Obama’s view when he declared, that America is not a Christian country.

    *****

    Cyprus

    In 1974, Turkish armed forces invaded Cyprus, capturing 36 percent of its territory, partitioning the island, and leading to the declaration of the northern Turkish Republic of Cyprus in 1983. This act of war and premeditated aggression was taken by an American ally and NATO member-country. At the time of the invasion the United States, whose foreign policy was considerably under Secretary of State Henry Kissinger’s stewardship, supplied Turkey with arms and perhaps funding. In supporting Turkey, the Nixon administration was sending a message of enmity to Archbishop Makarios’s government that directed Cyprus along non-aligned lines in the Cold War conflict between the two superpowers. Kissinger punished Makarios, demonstrated Soviet impotence, and sent a message of friendship to the Muslim world.

    At the time, only about 20 percent of the population in Cyprus was Turkish Muslim. Fearing a Greek takeover of the island which could harm the Muslim minority, Turkey acted with deliberate military force. In the succeeding years, Turkish forces implemented a policy of “ethnic cleansing” that sent close to 200,000 Greek Cypriots southward as refugees who lost their property; churches and cemeteries were desecrated by Muslim hooligans. Over time the small remaining Greek population of 20,000 people in the northern Turkish republic drastically dwindled, and Turkey transferred thousands of her Anatolian peasants to populate the island.

    The 2006 Annan Plan to resolve the political issue of de facto partition and reunite the island foundered on Greek Cypriot opposition to a proposal which did not guarantee the withdrawal of the Turkish army from the north. Washington had come to terms with Turkey’s occupation of Cyprus and with the ignoble and defeated condition of the dispirited Christian community.

    Lebanon

    The outbreak of war in Lebanon in 1975 between the native Maronite Christians and the alien Palestinians later expanded into a large-scale Muslim/Syrian/Palestinian assault on Christian Lebanon as a whole. Maronite villages and urban neighborhoods were mercilessly targeted, with enormous civilian fatalities, slaughter and devastation. The United States under President Carter sought to accommodate the Palestinians, dealing secretly with PLO operatives, while proposing in 1976 to save the Lebanese Christians, not by defending or arming them, but through their mass evacuation and emigration abroad.

    The Taif Accord in 1989 was designed to end the ‘Lebanese War’ misrepresented as a civil war. Arranged by the United States, Saudi Arabia, and Syria, this political orchestration of Lebanese political affairs dealt a severe blow to the Christians, by demoting the office of the Maronite-held presidency, and elevating the Muslim-held offices of Prime Minister and Speaker of the Legislature. Particularly insidious was the formula in the Accord that defined Lebanon as an Arab country in brotherly relations with Syria. The United States collaborated with Muslim groups and Arab states, and abandoned the ancient Christians of Lebanon.

    Balkans

    The war in Bosnia and Croatia from 1992-95 and that in Kosovo from 1996-99 pitted various ethnic/religious communities against each other within the boundaries of Yugoslavia, which dissolved in the 1990s. Serbian hegemony in the former federated state was shattered in each territory. Orthodox Christian Serbs were forced to flee as refugees from what became the independent countries of Catholic Croatia, Muslim-dominated Bosnia-Herzegovina, and the fledgling state of Albanian-ethnic Muslim Kosovo. In addition to the propaganda aspect of the wars that portrayed the Serbs as aggressors, murderers, and rapists, the compelling Serb loss of life and territory, stature and power, constituted the harsh political dénouement of the Balkan wars.

    The United States supported the adversaries and enemies of the Serb people, offering them moral sanction and military advice, arms and money; by contrast, the Serbs were defamed, ultimately charged with war crimes and “ethnic cleansing” at the International Criminal Court in the Hague. The sweeping obliteration of Serbian religious history and life in Kosovo was consummated with the destruction of monasteries and the desecration of churches, as Serbs ran for their lives.

    In 1995 the Americans formulated the Dayton Agreement designed to end the fighting in Bosnia between the majority Muslims and the minority Serbs. But this came about after NATO/U.S. bomber aircraft attacked Serb civilian targets and subdued Serb resistance to Bosnian-Muslim forces. American bombers also strafed Belgrade, the capital of the independent Serbian Republic. While the Saudis and Iranians assisted the Muslim jihad forces, America also chose Islam over Christianity in the Balkans, perhaps to mollify Arab allies in the Middle East, or to deny Russia a Serb victory in the name of Eastern Orthodox Christianity. All this contributed to the strengthening and expansion of Islam in Europe.

    Israel

    Although there is compelling evidence to substantiate the idea that America has been ‘Israel’s best friend’, and that the two countries enjoy a strategic relationship, the United States has been a great adversary of Israel’s national interests and rights. Since 1967, Washington has opposed Israel’s retention of territories captured in the Six Day War; and since 1993, with the Clinton presidency and the Oslo Accord process, and especially thereafter with the Bush presidency and the Road Map two-state plan from 2002, the U.S. has advocated Palestinian national rights and independence. Israel’s survival will be existentially endangered if the Palestinians have a state on the mountains above Israel, while the gushing thrust of hatred and hostility from neighboring Arab and Muslim countries, along with sedition galvanizing Arabs within the Green Line borders of Israel, threaten the foundations of the Jewish state.

    America has been pressing Israel at all political turns, arming her enemies, and relentlessly seeking ways and formulae that will coax and clobber Israel into submission. America is the great friend of the Arab world and the political and military patron of the PLO whose ultimate goal of Israel’s elimination is etched into the fabric of the philosophy and policy of the Palestinian campaign against Zionism and Jewish national sovereignty.

    In the eyes of Washington, the Arabs are never expected to accept responsibility for bellicosity and terrorism, mendacity and anti-Semitic propaganda. Concurrently, U.S. General Keith Dayton has supervised the military training and arming of Palestinian Authority army units whose final antagonist is Israel, not Hamas. Supporting Muslims against Jews, the United States actually foments war while brandishing the goal and fruits of peace.

    Moreover, the idea of a ‘Palestinian people’ conceals the reality of the majority Muslim element oppressing, persecuting, and intimidating the weaker Christian sector of Palestinian society. Christians have been run out of Bethlehem; Muslim converts to Christianity have been murdered; Christian-owned properties have been ransacked and set aflame. This is the Islam in Palestine of which America finds no fault or flaw.

    ——————

    In conclusion, the media war has cast the Christians and the Jews as malevolent agents of violence against innocent Muslim civilian victims. Everyone heard about the 1982 Christian Lebanese massacre of Palestinian Muslims in Sabra and Shatila in Beirut, and the Serb massacre of Bosnian Muslims in Srebrenica in 1995. But who has heard about the Turkish Cypriot Muslim massacre of Greek Christian Cypriots in Palekythro and the Turkish bombing of Kyrenian civilians in 1974, or the Palestinian massacre of Lebanese Christians in Damour and Ayshiyyah in 1976? Or the 1992 Bosnian Muslim slaughter of withdrawing Serb Christian soldiers in Dobrovoljacka Street in Sarajevo? And while the 2003 Palestinian terrorist bomb-attack murdering 21 Israelis at the Maxim Restaurant in Haifa is consigned to oblivion, Israeli warfare against Palestinians in Jenin in 2002 and Gaza in 2009 created headlines and an international outcry. Only Muslim blood is valued and enshrined in the book of commemoration and glory.

    The major modern victims of ethnic cleansing have been Christian populations, highlighted by genocidal campaigns that struck the Armenians in Turkey in 1915-16 and African Christians in Sudan since the 1950s. Paralyzed was America’s power and morality; even her voice was mute.

    The sub-text of this historical review identifies the vicious role and expansionist ambitions of Turkey that paralleled the American umbrella of denial of Muslim guilt, demonization of non-Muslim victims, and the demoralization of Western countries facing the amplification of Muslim political assertiveness and demographic proliferation.

    The Turks have acted as instigators and aggressors in the Balkans and Cyprus, and recently assumed the role of patron of the Palestinian people’s war against Israel. In the Mavi Marmara naval imbroglio from May 2010, the Turks led the provocative campaign on behalf of Free Gaza. Once a friend of Israel, radical Islamic Turkey recently allied with Islamic Iran has become her slanderous enemy.

    As for the Jews, when American jet bombers will zoom over the Galilee, Israel shouldn’t assume they are there to save her from the Arabs and Iranians as it is far more likely they will be coming to save the Palestinians from the Israelis. This scenario fits the pattern and purpose of U.S. strategic preferences, as in the past when Muslim/non-Muslim confrontations exploded.

    America is indeed walking hand-in-hand with Islam. This alliance preceded Obama, but became more explicit and more ‘spiritually’ expansive after he entered the White House. The future looks very dark in this twilight era of world affairs.

      Emails rec’d

      You lived in the US. You know the country culture. Why do you forward such braindead articles?

      Now, I am not disagreeing with the premise that America will at some point bomb Israel. I said it is coming immediately after 9/11.

      But it is not because America is supporting Islam. It is because America does not have a stomach for a long and bloody fight. It prefers “peace and quiet” and it does not care about historic justice or some other similar “b/s”. Look at Kosovo for example.

      So, the professor did not “nail it”. He just threw a hysterical fit. Nothing else.

      You’re right on target with this one. Three years ago, I traveled to Arkansas for a speaking engagement on Islamic terrorism at a local college. While there, I learned about a facility (that was owned by a major defense contractor) which provided weapons explosives training to Palestinians. This is one of many such locations being funded by the CIA / State Department.

      So that part is Okay with you?

      But it is not because America is supporting Islam.

      So why not refute Nissan’s premises with facts. Nissan gavea long historical overview, what don’t you agree with?

      It is because America does not have a stomach for a long and bloody fight. It prefers “peace and quiet” and it does not care about historic justice or some other similar “b/s”. Look at Kosovo for example.

      This statement has much truth but it still has nothing to do with the central argument of Nissan.
      It is the reasons you state that partially explains the successes of creeping Islamization in the West in general and America specifically. Yes let’s look again at Kosovo. Why do you suppose America and Nato attacked the wrong side? Oh I forgot America just wants peace and quite and doesn’t care about historic justice and similar”b/s”. I’m sure the tens of thousands of innocent dead Serbs murdered by America
      might not agree with you. I still don’t see how destroying Serbia brought peace and quiet to Americans?

    3. RandyTexas says:

      1. It was P.C.
      2. A blue dress with a stain was the top news at the time.

      Commentary: U.S. Has Long Sided with Arab World

      Paranoid poppycock. It looks like some Israeli professors are as idiotic as some American professors like Alan Dershowitz.

    5. Ted Belman says:

      The Prof is absolutely right. The US also saved the PLO and insisted that Israel take them back. You know I have been writing and saying the same thing. You may think it is the price of friendship that Israel must allow the US to work them over, but we don’t see it that way. The US should take their peace process and shove it.

    6. yamit82 says:

      Well said Ted.

      AE with all due respect, when you comment opposing an opinion that provides fact data to support his position the least you can do is to refute if you can with supportive fact data that refutes those opinions you oppose. If you can’t his position stands and your comment then becomes poppycock.

      I disagree with Dershowitz on almost everything,

      I assume from this that you would have told Israel’s Zionist founders to “shove it”, as you so quaintly put it -because they accepted a far less advantageous Israeli nation in 1947.

      The proof that it is paranoid, narrow-minded, self-serving and pure poppycock is that the US has more than Israeli partisans to worry about. The US has supported Israel morally, financially and militarily for decades now, and guaranteed its survival. So, for some mind-numbed partisan to write, “U.S. Has Long Sided with Arab World” against Israel is, ipso facto, paranoid, narrow-minded, self-serving and pure poppycock. Q.E.D.

      I agree that Dershowitz is not on the same intellectual planet as me. He lives on a planet of idiots. To begin with, his explanation of why he voted for Obama was pure, unadulterated idiocy. When I challenged him after the 2008 elections he replied sheepishly that he was “keeping an eye on what Obama was doing”.

      They accepted with a gun to their heads and a half million refugees stuck in camps in Europe and cyprus. They also felt that it was a window of opportunity that could close quickly if they didn’t accept. Now the revisionists didn’t accept and they were every bit our founders as the socialists. I am speaking of the partition plan not the declaration of Statehood. I to this day do not accept partition or ceding a grain of sand to those vermin cretins. I prefer a war of annihilation to any partition.

      America is also the friend of Wahhabite Saudi Arabia, totalitarian Egypt, the Al Jazeera state of Qatar, Bedouin Jordan, Islamist Kuwait, terrorist Iraq, and just about every other enemy of Israel. Our American friends sell immense quantities of advanced weapons to Saudi Arabia, provide $1.4 billion in annual aid to Egypt, fought for Kuwait, and spent more in Iraq than they gave to Israel in the last forty years.

      America gives Egypt and Palestine more aid than us, supplies Arabs more weapons than us, and pushes us around diplomatically. The annual subsidies are bribes at worst, payments at best. The amount of US aid, about $3 billion, has remained steady in nominal dollars since 1979, while the CPI has increased by more than three times during that period. The cost of weapons increases much faster than the CPI, and the amount which was substantial in 1979 is now negligible. The aid comprises 0.02 percent of the US GDP and 0.5 percent of its military budget. For Israel the figures are, respectively, 1.5 percent and 17 percent. Though even the 17 percent can be realistically offset by streamlining the Israeli army, the situation is actually much simpler: Israel spends 77 percent of the American aid for American weapons. R&D is a major part of advance weapons costing, and Israeli purchases help amortizing it. In effect, Israel receives the US subsidies in order to pass them to the US military contractors. The comparable Russian weapons—not exactly of the same quality, but still very good and sufficient for fighting the Arabs—cost four to seven times less. In terms of purchasing-power parity with Russia, US military aid to Israel amounts to about half a billion dollars annually and close to 3 percent of Israel’s military budget.

      Large-scale procurement of American weapons has made Israel dependent on America for any military operations and highly susceptible to threats of an American embargo on arms deliveries. Israel currently places tens of thousands of small (less than $100,000) orders with US defense contractors, which suggests across-the-board dependence on American suppliers for spare parts and minor items. That creates immense political dependence on the US.

      I’m all for dumping a declining superpower and going solo picking and choosing our own options and our own allies where possible. Americas biggest export is military weapons and all are inflated big ticket items. If we were to buy Russian or French more than half of Americas arms customers would follow our lead that’s our value. We indirectly are Americas sales tool for weapons. The Russians would sell their Babushkas to get us to buy their stuff.

      I think the broken clock has been correct more often than you have.

      My intelligence has nothing to worry about from Alan Dershowitz, whom I have locked horns with on his idiotic rationale for voting for Obama, and he ran and hid under his desk. Also Omer Bartov of Brown University when I blasted him for smearing a friend of Israel for having Nazi sympathies because he had played a Nazi officer in a glorified historical play called an re-enactment.

      Poppycock. They accepted what the Brits came up with because it seemed fair to them on balance. They did not have the luxury of pissing and moaning. If the Palestinians had agreed, it would have been a fait accompli.

      America is also the friend of Wahhabite Saudi Arabia, totalitarian Egypt, the Al Jazeera state of Qatar, Bedouin Jordan, Islamist Kuwait, terrorist Iraq, and just about every other enemy of Israel.

      You should be happy about this instead of acting like a spoiled brat. Waaaah! You gave them more than you gave meeee! Whine! Whimper! Piss! Moan!

      We pay all these countries to stay off Israel’s back.

      Recently it was Saudi intel that thwarted the attempt to plant bombs in printers on airplanes.

      It is easy enough for you to say shove it. But Israel is still dependant on the U.S. for for aircraft parts, and all the many nuts and bolts needed to stock their armaments inventory.

      When it comes to the question of receiving weapons from other supplier nations you run it the problem of incampatibility with existing systems.

      Making recommendations based on technical ignorance is useless babble.

    13. Ted Belman says:

      The peace process does Israel no good and therefore I say shove it. Yes we are dependant and yes sometimes we have to do things that are forced upon us but that doesn’t mean that we like it. There I say shove it to make the point.

      America has its interests and we have ours. In many cases they are not synonomous. America cultivates good relations with the Arabs at our expense. We have every right to refuse to pay the bill.

      Ted writes:

      This is a very narrow-minded view, tantamount to a falsehood. Israel is not paying any “bill”. In fact, it is getting a freebie at the expense of American yaxpayers. The good relations with the Arabs keeps them off Israel’s back, and it costs the US a lot of money to achieve this.

      Without the Saudi tip on the printer bombs thousands of innocent people could have died last week.

    15. Ted Belman says:

      AE.

      The good relations with the Arabs keeps them off Israel’s back, and it costs the US a lot of money to achieve this.

      Nonsense. America says to the Arabs, we’ll do it for you. I’d rather have the Arabs unaided by America , on our backs rather than America representing Arab wishes, on our back.

      Israel would be a lot better off if America hadn’t armed Egypt to the teeth and is about to arm Saudi Arabia likewise. It is also arming and training the PA. Israel has more to fear from the US than from the Arabs. Let America curry favour as they wish but not by forcing us to capitulate. Americans are with us on this and you know it.

      America curries favour from the Arabs by forcing Israel to make concessions. The funny thing is its not working unless you think the spread of Wahhabism throughout the world is good for the US. That’s what Prof thinks who wrote the piece about America supporting Muslims.

      Israel would be better off with the Sinai than with the cold peace agreement with Egypt. If the Brotherhood takes power after Mabarak’s death, even moreso.

      If Sarah Palin becomes the President,She will direct a foreign policy that sees a strong Israel as an asset and she will not force Israel to do what she doesn’t want to do.

      If America is our friend and not a friend conditional on us giving in to the Arabs, she will be there for us when we need her. She will resupply us in a prolonged war and join us in a war against our mutual enemy Iran. That’s what friends do. That’s what Palin would do.

      The Brits were our friends at one time, when they needed us and with ulterior motives when they created the Palestine Mandate. From that time on they have been our sworn enemy. They sided with the Arabs at every turn and even violated the Mandate time and time again. America followed in her pro-Arab policies, now more than ever.

      If Sarah Palin becomes the President,She will direct a foreign policy that sees a strong Israel as an asset and she will not force Israel to do what she doesn’t want to do.

      Israel is an asset and an ally whose security is guaranteed and for whom support is provided at great cost to US taxpayers regardless of the few ingrates among Israelis.

      There is no way that the US can force Israel to do anything as we have seen repeatedly over the years.

      If America is our friend and not a friend conditional on us giving in to the Arabs, she will be there for us when we need her. She will resupply us in a prolonged war and join us in a war against our mutual enemy Iran. That’s what friends do. That’s what Palin would do.

      This is what any US president would do. Even Obama would be forced to do so by US publican opinion.

      The Brits were our friends at one time, when they needed us and with ulterior motives when they created the Palestine Mandate.

      Jews were not the only inhabitants of J&S, or perhaps you were not aware of this? It is such self-centered ideas which would harm Israel if you were in any position of power, which is why you will never be in any position of power in Israel

    17. yamit82 says:

      I think the broken clock has been correct more often than you have.

      I almost told you to stick to what you know, then realized you know nothing except sound bytes and headlines. Your depth of knowledge can fit in a thimble and the more you rant the more you prove my point.

      Without the Saudi tip on the printer bombs thousands of innocent people could have died last week

      .

      Now why do you believe this obvious story plant? I think you are a Muslim sympathizer and apologist.

      You should be happy about this instead of acting like a spoiled brat. Waaaah! You gave them more than you gave meeee! Whine! Whimper! Piss! Moan!

      No we don’t want our friends to supply our enemies with the means to kill us. What I was suggesting is a total embargo of weapons to everyone including Israel. That would even the playing field. Actually we don’t need a damn thing from America we could use our nukes and second strike capability to assert ourselves with might and deterrence. We could easily destroy every oil producing field in the ME within a few min. and there isn’t a damn thing anyone could do to stop us. We could put all of habitable Egypt under water with a small tactical nuke.

      Our best weapons and deterrence is being Mad Jews. You’ve heard maybe of a nuclear winter. You might not see the sun for many months. Watching our backs? Get real. We could destroy the world including America if pushed and threatened past a certain point.

      America is paving the prerequisite conditions for a major conflict that may extend beyond our region. Israel will pay a heavy price when that war erupts. Remember the Liberty!

    18. yamit82 says:

      This is why Bibi is PM and you are babysitting Yamit.

      I don’t need a babysitter.

      Israel is an asset and an ally
      True!! Gold star for you.

      whose security is guaranteed
      really? How? by arming to the teeth all of our enemies? Stopping Iran from attaining a nuclear capability? Stopping N. Korea from proliferation and Pakistan? Getting rid of the major purveyor of Islamic terror and ideology, the Saudis? Training a Pali Army, arming and financing them? Betraying every friend and Allie who aligned themselves with America since WW2?

      and for whom support is provided at great cost to US taxpayers regardless of the few ingrates among Israelis.

      Screw American tax payers, American policy is forcing Israeli tax payers to pay 200% more than we should

      This is what any US president would do. Even Obama would be forced to do so by US publican opinion.

      You contradict yourself. Majority of American public opinion was against Obamacare and he ignored that public of yours.

      Jews were not the only inhabitants of J&S, or perhaps you were not aware of this?

      White Europeans were not alone when they landed on the American continent. Did that stop them from committing genocide against the natives?

      It is such self-centered ideas which would harm Israel if you were in any position of power,

      So leave America and give it back to it’s rightful owners. or how about returning Florida, Arizona, New Mexico,Texas, Nevada, Oaklahoma and California back to Mexico.?

      Yamit writes:
      Now why do you believe this obvious story plant? I think you are a Muslim sympathizer and apologist.

      It is far more likely that it is YOU who is a Muslim sympathiser based on your attempts to drive a wedge between Israel and its only real ally, the US which has been subsidizing and supporting Israel to be able to defend itself against Muslim radicals.

      I don’t need a babysitter.

      You are correct. You need a prison guard for your serial treason.

      I don’t need a babysitter.

      Israel is an asset and an ally
      True!! Gold star for you.

      This obviously excludes Yamit who wants to destroy the alliance that supports Israel.

      whose security is guaranteed
      really? How?

      Yes, really. How? Here’s how.

      a) by subsidizing Israel with BILLIONS each year for decades now, in cash and arms and other support.

      b) by protecting Israel with UN vetoes.

      c) by paying Arab countries to keep off Israel’s back.

      So leave America and give it back to it’s rightful owners.

      We are now the rightful owners. Previously, it did not belong to anyone.

      White Europeans were not alone when they landed on the American continent. Did that stop them from committing genocide against the natives?

      The American continent was an open territory that did not belong to anyone. If you describe what happened to the natives who attacked the settlers as genocide, then you would have to describe the Palestinians killed when Israel defends itself as genocide.

      or how about returning Florida, Arizona, New Mexico,Texas, Nevada, Oaklahoma and California back to Mexico.?

      Why would we do that? We acquired these states legitimately. The acquisition has been accepted by all sides. Besides, Mexico cannot even handle what they have now.
