Long term interim? Sounds like a foolish idea. Make peace, or hurry the hell up and slaughter each other. We in the rest of the world are tired of both of you.

Yes- you are quite correct that it cannot be repeated enough times, as you have done here. But the world will always continue to blame the Jews that they refuse to be banished/swept from the Earth.

The endless attempts to do so have continued for thousands of years and no doubt will continue long into the future.

As for the blatant hypocrisy engendered in all this- no country on planet Earth ever referred to Gaza as being “occupied” during all the decades it was under Egyptian control. And no one ever referred to the so-called “West Bank” as being “occupied” by anyone, during all the years that area was under the sole control of Jordan.

Land is apparently only considered “occupied” when there are Jews present. That is why to the Arabs, all of the State of Israel is considered “occupied” land.

The great eternal question is why the enemies of the Jews still believe they will someday succeed in wiping them from the Earth.

The Jewish people managed to survive for thousands of years when they were effectively defenseless against attack from those who wished to destroy them.

If they nonetheless managed to survive during all those countless centuries when they had next to nothing with which to defend themselves, they will surely find the means now to survive any and all attacks from their many enemies when they have somewhat more than nothing in the area of their numerous means to defend themselves.

The people in the countries surrounding the State of Israel can only dream of possessing the standard of living and legal protections that citizens of Israel possess, whether Arab, Jew, Christian or other.

There is no point in ever debating the issues of the Middle East.

Those who wish to see the State of Israel destroyed will continue to do so regardless of the facts of history. Those that are blind will never see and those that are deaf will never hear.

But the State of Israel will endure and continue to share with the rest of the world, the fruits of its scientific and medical breakthroughs, long after its neighbors have run out of oil, their one and only commodity of any value.

A commodity that in the end, more is the pity, pollutes the air of the Earth just as their boundless hatred of the people of Israel is made to pollute the minds of their innocent children in an endless cycle of violence and despair.

Israel is an independent country, and not the 51st state of the US; therefore, the US should not try to dictate Israel’s actions re the Palestinians or anything else. Nor should the US give Israel money, or any military support or political support in the UN or anywhere else.

Stop sending Israel $6,000,000,000 a year.

From Pat Buchanan “Whose War” written in 2003

if Bush( now Obama) cannot deliver Sharon (now netayahu) there can be no peace. And if there is no peace in the Mideast there is no security for us, ever—for there will be no end to terror. As most every diplomat and journalist who travels to the region will relate, America’s failure to be even-handed, our failure to rein in Sharon (netanyahu) , our failure to condemn Israel’s excesses, and our moral complicity in Israel’s looting of Palestinian lands and denial of their right to self-determination sustains the anti-Americanism in the Islamic world in which terrorists and terrorism breed.

Dam right, you have to agree with the Arabs, a Jewish state is a bad idea. An Israel state would be alright. But does the world need the problems of another religious run country. The news keeps dancing around. The real problem is a Jewish state vs. a Israel state. In America we are to separate religion from government. Yet, tax dollars are supporting a religion in Israel. The Arabs say they do not have any problems with the Jewish religion or a Israel state, but they do have a problem with a Jewish state. What happens to all the Arabs who are Israeli citizens? They become second class citizens.

“The conflict can be managed and it is important to manage the conflict”.
This is how international Zionism works, and has done since before WW1. Often it is necessary to provide the problem and the solution.
Or just the problem is just fine if a situation that has no solution is preferable.

Lieberman’s comments should not be accommodated by the press. Why should we be exposed to the words of a blatant racist who advocates the expulsion of Arab Israeli citizens. In civilized countries he would be arrested for inciting hatred.
