Nice link, although typical... Reporters, and news networks, newspapers, magazines...they slay me! I checked out the link that "fight4yourrights" posted. CBS did their best to come up with a snazzy map, along with an "informative" sidebar on how things came to be. What I noticed was there was ZERO mention of Israel being attacked in 1956, in 1967, and in 1973 by all of their neighbors, and that Israel took this ground in combat, captured it after pushing back a series of combined assaults, and defending their nation from those who would either slaughter them all, or drive them back into the sea. I daresay that we in the US would give Canada or Mexico back any land that we took...hey, wait a sec...we fought Mexico and threatened Canada (well, Britain with the "54-40 or fight" campaign, but what the hell) for land. Should we give back New Mexico, Arizona, California? Or part of Montana, Idaho, and Washington? Did someone say something about Native American tribes, too?

Make sure you check that "continue" button at the bottom of the map. I missed it at first.
