You're right. Like the fact that it's an analogy over the fact that Americans have as much love for Canada as Jordan, Egypt, Syria, etc. have for the Palestinian Territories. So why would they suddenly give up on Palestine and take in everybody? Such asinine logic.

But it's just like neo-cons to fixate on unimportant details rather than the whole point of the analogy in the first place. Who the fuck cares if Canada is a country and the Palestinian Territories aren't yet?

It really is quite amazing what needs to be spelled out for some people.

And yet these countries will practially weep publically about the plight of the poor Palestinians against the evil that is Israel, of course you'd need to be paying attention to know that.

Like we weeped about the plight of the poor Iraqis? Why didn't we just take them all in if we felt so sorry for them? Instead, we sent in our full military might to "liberate" them. I'm sure the U.S. would be just "overjoyed" if Middle Eastern nations followed our example there.

To be blunt, what planet are you living on to think that anyone would just cede all their territory in a conflict? We can't even cede military involvement in Iraq and Afghanistan until some arbitary sense of "victory," so why do you think that Arab nations are going to just flat out give up and cede victory to Israel, their sworn enemy? Would we just decide one day to let all the Iraqis live in America and give the remaining territory to Iran?

I guess neo-cons and logic are a contradiction in terms.
