QuoteOriginally posted by: ppauper'illegimiate' is definitely the wrong word :-)You don't think the Jews driven out of the west bank in 1929 by the arabs have a right of return?aka how to use myth and history to justify your ends. History is bunk, especially the 5000 years-old version. A bit like the Scots-Irish myth. There is no such thing as 'Scots-Irish'.

Approach your problem from the right end and begin with the answers. Then one day, perhaps you will find the final question..

History is bunk, especially the 5000 years-old version.1929 to 1967 was 38 years not 5000But 1929 is based on a 500-year old myth. Bit like Scots-Irish QuoteTheir unique experience meant that they would not, like their Scottish relatives, be attracted to Jacobitism in the Eighteenth Century. Neither would they be able to maintain both a Scottish identity and the Catholic religion. They believed their culture, their religion, and their way of life was superior to that of their Irish neighbors, just as their children, in moving to the American colonies, would believe their culture superior to that of the Indians.
