BravadoGT: Israel should stop pussyfooting around
BravadoGT: Israel should stop pussyfooting around, and stop pining for the possibility of peace through a two-state solution. End the daily barrage of rockets into Israel, and send the Palestinians back to their homeland--Jordan.
GAT_00: They decided they needed the living space to the west.
Uzzah: Fark it. When kids can't share with each other, adults take away the contested toy so nobody gets to play with it. I say kick them both out, and give the land to, I don't know, those dudes from Polynesia whose islands are sinking because of rising sea levels.
zedster: GAT_00: They decided they needed the living space to the west.umm... They left Gaza
MeinRS6: We could make it about gay marriage. Farklibs love gay marriage.Whichever gov't recognizes gay marriage first gets all the land.Ready. Set. Go!
Nick Nostril: The west bank of what? And what the hell kind on name for a country is "West Bank" anyway?
BalugaJoe: It was given to the Jews by god.

JohnAnnArbor: /Ask Germany what happened to East Prussia.
JohnAnnArbor: The Arab world is big on "right of conquest" as long as it's Muslims doing the conquering.
weiserfireman: It's like having people in the US agitating for the return of the Confederacy.
weiserfireman: If the residents of that land settled down and acted like they wanted to be part of Israel, instead of agitating for the overthrow of the Israeli Government, in favor of themselves, this would have been over a long long time ago.
jakomo002: JohnAnnArbor: /Ask Germany what happened to East Prussia.Uh, no. We have laws that say that you can't just keep territory you take in armed conflict, you can't occupy it indefinitely, and you can't arrest people in that territory and then transport to your country for incarceration. If you do occupy, you are responsible for the health and well being of the entire Occupied Population.Remember how Russia rolled into Georgia a while ago? That Saskashvilli guy was poking them and they rolled right in. Then they pulled out. All the way out. Because it's an international law and Russia doesn't have the USA to veto any resolution.And in your analogy the Israelis are the Germans in WWI?
JohnAnnArbor: When you enter into two wars of extermination (1948, 1973) and plan another (1967, pre-empted) and lose all three times, it might be time to change your tactics from "kill all the Jews."
zedster: They should just pull out all the crazy Settlers, keep All of Jerusalem and return the rest to Jordan. The Palestinians, Arab league and UN would have no idea wtf just happened.
JohnAnnArbor: East Prussia is part of Russia now. All the Germans, millions of them, were forcibly deported. That's what happens when you start wars you lose. We hold lots of islands that used to be Japanese territory; others have become independent nations since WWII. (Why we allowed them to get Iwo Jima back is beyond me.)
