Tatsuma: Eshkar: Well lets try your retarded logic for a minute, so lets give Jerusalem back to the nation Israel recaptured it from... that would be Jordan. Lets put all of these poor 'Palestinians' in the hands of the Jordanians who put them in 'refugee' camps and treat them like shiat and refuse them citizenship... even though over 70% of their population is made up of peoples that identify as 'Palestinian". On the other hand Israel grants those in Jerusalem with full Israeli Citizenship (and voting rights) and allow them to live peaceful life's; and who a majority have already stated they wouldn't give up their Israeli citizenship for 'Palestinian' citizenship... hmmm

Oh and Jordan announced today they would revoke citizenship to 1.6 million Arabs who identify as 'palestinians'.

I am waiting for the outcry.

There will be no outcry, they're both bastard children abandoned by their neighbors around them... too damned much like eachother to get along with even eachother... so they'll wander alone through the desert some more... on the bright side, they're both abrahamic, so it's not like it's new to them.

Tatsuma: There was not thing such as an arab 'palestinian people' a hundred years ago. The only people who were called 'palestinians' then were Jews. The Arabs who are now called palestinians were originally Egyptians, Syrians and Jordanians who moved in the area in the last 150 years and did not have any sort of link whatsoever with this area, or a separate identity from the rest of the surrounding countries.

Also, how about you let us decide who is Jewish and who is not, you arrogant little twerps?

In the same way Israeli's decide who is Palestinian?

casual disregard: So now set aside all of the history and all of the supposition. It's meaningless, it's gone. My USA killed hundreds of thousands of natives and drove them from their lands. I hate that fact, but it is reality. Germany killed millions of Jews and drove them from their homes; that's a pretty crappy history, but it's real. Knowing all of that, how does Israel confront the obvious enmity on the ground and convert it into a livable future for everyone? Not just for Jews, but for Arabs and for Druze and for Copts and for Catholics and for Magians and for Animists and so forth. What's the real fix? A hard line in the sand is a call to war. We've been there. We've done that. What now?

There can only be peace when there are two sides willing to make peace.

Polls came out this week, and the overwhelming majority of the PA said that the national goal is the destruction of Israel, even after the creation of a state. "Peace" is seen as just another weapon in the war against us.

As for them being ready for a viable state, 75% of Gazans under 21 and have no professional experience whatsoever. There are similar numbers for the other PA citizens.

Add this to the grip of terrorist groups on the population, and it does not paint a pretty picture for peace, unless there are major societal changes that happen.

Mrtraveler01: I wonder if Tats would think these guys are squatters too? (new window)

No, because the land was sold to them.

But if a group of Israelis were to ch'vs illegally invade the private property of Arabs and declare it a new settlement, I would absolutely oppose this, yes.

The Romans as a people have completely stopped to exists. We thrive and are back in our land.

They did not 'kick Arabs out of their homes', they kicked out squatters from buildings that were owned by others.

Move the Israeli capitol from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem?

Pretty sure that's not in the Constitution.
