the problem with Talon's version of history, and if he represents the notion of history in Britain, then British version of history, is revisionism. It seem to me that up there in Europe, history is tought in light of the current world events.
If Israel is currently looking bad, than lets down-size the Holocaust.
If the Palestinians don't have any historical ownership on the land, but still call it Palestinian lands instead of disputed territory, then lets invent a fictional historical Palestine.
"My" version of history, or more accurately - the non revisionist and un-biased version of history, is nothing but anti-European. The fact the Europeans have a lot to be shame of about their recent history in their treatments to minorities, doesn't mean that history is anti-European.
On the contrary - if I was to deal with history base on the current situation of Europe, forgetting anything to this point and re-vision the past through today's politics, that would be bias. And that, Talon my friend, is exactly what youre doing.
