Apparently, not much!

I cannot believe it... I actually got them all right. This is the  first and most likely the last time that this will happen.

Here you go Wendi!

Here you go Joy!!{#basic-laugh.gif}

Joy- I was going to share..lol

Thanks winning... I love cookies and pies.

haha... do you have nuts in yours? I like nuts...

Your answer to "when was the modern palestenian territory formed?" is wrong, winning... unless you cobsiser the 67 war is a legal way of determining it. Palestine as a nation was determined after WW I... and that is legal boarders of palestine .... until the 48 war.... wars do not detrmine the final resolution of any conflect until one side is eliminated... the Arabs and the palestenians are here and pesent as ever... and they  will.always be there... that is history.... the question is Can Israel outlast them? history say no.... 

TA...that is the foil question in the quiz?{#basic-laugh.gif}

Operative word in the question is "Modern"!

Still, not valid winning.... if the boarder still in dispute you cant conaider it at all. WWI boarder IS the modern one. currently, neither palestine nor Israel have a defined boarder... both sides are still in dispute how to divide that modern WWI boarder between them... even Israel does not recognize its pre-67 boarders as final.

Again without giving away the answer....you are hitting all the key points!{#basic-laugh.gif}

It is the question that most people assume they know the answer to....but in reality it is the most complex, while at the same time easiest to answer.

Truth be told...I had to go back and research deeper after writing the question....finally realized that the answer I thought was correct was not!

I think I will do a Post on that question alone...using some of the points you are highlighting....if you don't mind!{#basic-laugh.gif}

Not at all... go ahead... the British and French divided the Otman empire possessions between then in a sacs-becon treaty, i believe it is called, and that is signed by all sides... that is the last madern legal document detrmining all boarders in the middle east and north Africa... including the creation of Kuwait, Jordan, lebanon ...etc

TA you are really on point with this one.....keep a look out for the Post....should be some good dialogue!

By the way....where have you been?  Haven't seen you lately!

Thanks for asking winning... i have been under theweather as they say lately... i think i am coming down with something.... ... will be looking forward of what you come up with in this very complex issue

Got four out of five right. The one I got wrong was

When was the Modern Palestinian Territory finally formed?

I thought it was 1917. Perhaps I mixed it up with my country's Balfour declaration of 1917. 

{#basic-laugh.gif}....you were on the right track.....but, without giving away the answer....go a little deeper into Balfour!

So I would say that it must be 1920 to 1948 when we British took control of the area 

you are right... 1917-1919 IS the modern legal one... anything else is in dispute.... not settled... can not be valid

{#basic-laugh.gif}

I debated the  two  dates on the first wars and chose the wrong one I was so young when it happened. otherwise i guess i know it all  pretty good. That was my only wrong answer

That one actually gets a lot of people....because one of the dates is more often mentioned then the others!

 

I don't know why ... probably my dyslexia ... but I read that as UN Resolution 262 instead of 242 ... otherwise I would have aced it ...

That's okay rusty.....242 is not talked about much these days!{#basic-laugh.gif}

I had to GUESS at all of them..........I got 3 right

Not bad beyaself....it is a very complex topic!!{#basic-laugh.gif}

you got me on this one....I admit to guessing and using the "if it sounds simple, the answer that jumps out at ya is likely wrong..." approach and got only 2 right.  *sigh*

That's okay Vickie....I did not get them all right the first time.  Remember I think up the questions...give my answers then research the correct answer!{#basic-laugh.gif}

It my quiz and I only got 4 of 5.

5 for 5. This is a topic that comprises about 1/6 of my library and my library runs about 2400 volumes.

Here you go Zen!

Keep track of me....as I told TA I am going to do a more detailed Post on this subject....would appreciate your dialogue!{#basic-laugh.gif}

I tend not to argue this point, Winning. I am very one sided on this issue having studied it enough to know who is in the right (as much as that is possible) here.

Actually not going to argue it....just try to give people a little information......as I am actually a little one sided on it also.  The solution as far as I am concerned is so easy.....but man have there been some things that have happened over the last 94 years that have complicated it.

Again...keep an eye on me...and get me on track if I get off!{#basic-laugh.gif}

had to guess on #2, but got lucky and went 5-5

Here you go Scotter!

My day is complete! {#basic-tongue-out.gif}

Thanks for the quez 

No problem!!

Come back from time to time...there will be others!{#basic-laugh.gif}
