True- and it could be a part of Palestine, if only the Palestinians would accept the three conditions for peace agreed to by the international communuity.

*Cessation of terror
*Secure and recognized boundaries
*Diplomatic recognition.

Which exactly of those three things are too onerous a burden for the Palestinians?

The Palestinians are not well served by their leadership.

We are talking about foreigners here. Israel is not an American outpost in the Middle East, so I don’t get the knee jerk reaction.

That’s the American problem with the Israel/Palestinian conflict. The USA does not have the political will to impose a peace and the stronger side, Israel is not in a mood to meet Palestinian demands - especially when those in power are linked to religiously minded settlers with a manifest destiny outlook towards the Occupied Territories.
