Vicious Babushka,

Based on this, it Doesn't sound like there are too many right wing Israelis that want to wipe the Palestinians off the face of the Earth.

This thing is looking very hard to find them. Maybe they are hiding under its bed.

Maybe 'War on Music' knows their hiding places.

You know what I hate? When Flying somewhere, I really hate the slow landing process. It takes so long and my ears hurt as we descend.

I bet if I took a poll, a majority would agree with me. If so, the pilot should be told to just speed up the descent, pulling up only at the last possible second....and that should be much closer to the gate.

What could go wrong?

re: #27 Freedom fighter

Only after collapse of Israel free Palestinian state is possible

It will be soon

It's just so bizarre to me that you can literally have people calling for the destruction of a state in a major newspaper and that comment will have two upvotes and no downvotes.

Slight issue:

Another principle presented by the pollsters was that Jewish Jerusalem would be under Israeli sovereignty and the Arab neighborhoods would be under Palestinian sovereignty.

That's a mile wide loophole.

All Israel needs to do is "create more facts on the ground," and keep kicking Palestinians out of their homes in this area. Then the Arab neighborhoods are Jewish Neighborhoods. It's not like they haven't already done this.

Also, the landswap thing could be exploited. My fear is that Israel will take and keep the most fertile and developed areas, and give Palestine worthless desert. Why wouldn't Israel do this.

I simply do not trust Israel to allow a contiguous, self-supporting Palestinian State. Will Israel allow more Palestinian water rights?

And if the Jewish Settlements are to stay, they become part of Palestine. They can be just like the Arab Neighborhoods is Israel.

While I haven't said this yet, my first experience with the Israel-Palestine conflict came from a documentary I watched by ABC before Peter Jennings died. Don't know what year the documentary was made, but I saw it in class in Spring 2003. One of the Israelis they interviewed said something like "We won the war. They need to get out and leave."

That has stayed with me.

And that Anti-Muslim, Anti-Arab piece of filth that is Buck can be quiet on this.

Peter Jennings, who used to live with Hanan Ashrawi. But the public was ever told this, & he was allowed to "interview" her as prettily as he liked, for as long as he could. Thank you for showing just how powerful the media is, & how dangerous lies are.

I'm not sure what this poll is supposed to prove, since respondents were only given one option to vote yes or no on. It doesn't follow this is their preferred solution, just that most would take the deal over continued conflict. I'd be curious what the same poll would show from Palestinians.
And there are right-wing Jews who long for "Greater Israel". They're in the minority to be sure, but just like in the US, they've pushed their agenda over the moderates.
