An Israeli friend now living in the US emails:
As a child growing in Israel in the early 70's...we never saw (or even heard of) the "Green Line." In fact, it was only when I arrived here, much later in life, that I realized the state of Israel is parted, according to most maps of the world, into two sections (east and west of the Green Line). The way we had the maps in our classrooms, the Sinai, Golan, and West Bank were all as much a part as Israel as Tel Aviv.After 1979 the maps were corrected to eliminate the Sinai, but that was the only correction. They were never corrected post-Oslo, or, for that matter, before or since. The Israeli Ministry of Education (particularly today) makes sure that every boy and girl in the State of Israel will grow up to think that the entire portion of land between Jordan and the sea is ours. Then, when Bibi speaks of his refusal to "return" them, those kids totally understand him: Why should we return what is ours?
Indeed, just as the counter-Israeli propaganda begins at a very early age in Palestinian schools, we too are guilty of brain washing.
