According to Mr. Price, Israel "acts with impunity" against Palestinian Arabs and Lebanon. Unmentioned are thousands of Israeli casualties, two Arab uprisings, withdrawals from Gaza, Lebanon and major portions of the West Bank. Per Mr. Price, Israel has "consistently obstructed and resisted" peace. Unmentioned are the 1980s treaty with Lebanon (repudiated by that country), the 1993 Oslo accords, and the current absolute refusal of Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas to negotiate with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. To Mr. Price, Israel was and remains too ignorant to do what is best for itself and "its allies in Washington and the capitals of Europe" have to guide them for their own good. The Israel government's experience is not valid in determining its policy. Mr. Price, sitting in his time capsule, obviously believes since he has nothing to learn from history, neither do the Israelis.
