Quote of the Day - Ruth Wisse, WSJ - "How About an Arab 'Settlement' Freeze"

Of the children of Abraham, the descendants of Ishmael currently occupy at least 800 times more land than descendants of Isaac...Since 1948 upward of 800,000 Jews abandoned their homes and forfeited their goods in Egypt, Iraq, Morocco and Yemen. In addition to assets valued at hundreds of billions of dollars, the property deeds of Jews from Arab lands is estimated at a total area of 100,000 square miles, which is five times the size of the state of Israel, and more than Israel would include even if it were to stretch over all the disputed territories of the West Bank. -- Ruth Wisse, Wall Street Journal, March 21, 2010, "How About an Arab 'Settlement' Freeze"
