    They founded an ethnic based state on land were people of a different ethnicity already lived.  There's no way that ends up working out well.

      the Tibetans ever get to take back Tibet, too. Or if Native Americans reclaim land where white people are living. But it seems as if a two-state solution would be a step forward.

        Israel isn't going to go away.  That doesn't make their history any less racist and full of ethnic cleansing.  Nor does the fact that Native Americans will never have the power to take back their old lands make us pushing them off of them any less racist and horrible.

        But it seems as if a two-state solution would be a step forward.
        And that looks more and more unlikely every day.  Israel is on a slow march to the realization of so called Greater Israel and a hell of a lot of people are in denial about that fact.

        Israel was founded on stolen land, as was the US.  The Palestinians are just in a position to fight back, unlike the Native Americans.
