Question never asked

Marginal Revolution points us to various blogs on both sides of the current Israel-Islamist war in the mid-east. The blogs are interesting -- and more proof that reading blogs can be a much better use of time than reading conventional media reports.

I read those as the Syrian ambassador was interviewed on PBS. His position (and that of many others) is that Israel has been an occupier of Arab lands since 1967 and he and his allies simply want them to return to the pre-1967 borders.

But before the 1967 war, which Arab leader accepted those borders? None, I think. But it's a question that is never asked.
