The Remnant, Christopher Carter: The following article will no doubt be regarded by some as too controversial to be addressed in this forum. We have decided to post it anyway, however, not to be merely provocative but rather out of a strong conviction that there is a tremendous amount of ignorance of the subject matter, coupled with high emotions on all sides that are often couched in the politically correct narrative that one side of the conflict is right and beyond reproach, while the other is bad and in no sense deserving of any sort of hearing. Both history and experience teach us that this is never a good sign, that there are two sides to every conflict, and that if there is to be any hope of conflict resolution in this case there must first be open and fair hearings given to all parties concerned. Understanding the Mideast situation, especially as it pertains to the Israeli/Palestinian conflict, must necessarily begin with a working knowledge of the history of the region and thus the context of the controversy. We believe Mr. Carter’s article makes a worthy attempt to do that. That said, we’ll be more than happy to post constructive and respectful opinions that run contrary to his, again in the interest of getting to the historical source—the heart, in this case—of probably the most bitter land dispute in the world today—a dispute that, one way or another, given the close alliance between the U.S. and Israel, will impact us all and the future of the world in which we live.
