  •  I think we can come to an agreement here (0+ / 0-)

    Yes...I absolutely support that.  I just would like for all of the killing and strife to end there.  When I was in high school in the late '50's and early 60's, we were taught that this area was the "hot spot" of the world.  50 years later, it's a "hot spot" of the world...among other, for sure.  I truly would like to see a Palestinian state to live right along side with an Israeli state.  Isn't that what's been the objective with all the peace accords and other efforts all these years?  

    The truth is sometimes very inconvenient.

    •  Why do you think Israel hasn't let go in all these (0+ / 0-)

      50 years?  Why are Israeli settlers still being given financial support by the Israeli government to encroach on West Bank land, tear down Palestinian homes and build their own? Why does the Israeli government assume the right to continue to control the land adjacent to the Jordan River in any 2-state settlement? Why does the total amount of land Israel is willing to allow inside a Palestinian border continue to decrease?

      Eliminate tax breaks that stimulate the offshoring of jobs.

      •  Good questions (0+ / 0-)

        I certainly don't have the answers...nor do those that are supposedly far more involved in this and trying to get these questions answered.  I just don't know.  When will it end?  A hundred years from now?  Yeah, I think so.  It's just so discouraging to see the strife and killings and so forth.  And, I don't "blame" either side.  I think there's a solution here somewhere...but haven't got a clue where that's at.
