These sorts of aggression only soured the relationship that ratcheted up in intensity since 1948. By no means am I saying that it's all the Arabs' fault - but that ek hathe tali baje na. But since 1967, Israel has let their power and backing by powerful friends get to their heads. They have been trodding on a path of arrogance ever since.
Ok the second question is clear. But since your statement says "in response to Israel's creation" ... That's why I said that...it's quiet black/white after that isn't it? Well in relation to reactionary statement....
