Talk about a historical ripple, I've been wondering lately what the middle east would be like today if WW2 had never happened, if the holocaust never occurred.
I read that approximately 6 million Jewish people were killed in the holocaust. What I keep wondering is how would Palestine/Israel look today if those people had never been killed.
Would Israel even exist? When the Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor it awoke the sleeping giant. Ever since America has rallied to the aid of those in need, Israel, Vietnam, etc. The question I find myself asking is if the world is a better place since the sleeping giant has awoken.
