Wrong turn to the promised land


I’m travelling from the Sinai to the “promised land”. Golda Meir (Israel’s PM 1969-74) complained: “Let me tell you something that we Israelis have against Moses. He dragged us 40 years through the desert in order to bring us to the one spot in the Middle East that has no oil!” Had he turned right instead of left, they’d be in Saudi Arabia! The Palestinians would be happier. The Saudis, certainly not.
