  •  Earlier, they rejected the Peel Plan (0+ / 0-)

    which would have given a much smaller amount of land to the Jews. Anyway, it's clear we're not going to convince each other. I believe in a two-state solution. Israel needs to give up the West Bank. If you want Israel to just go away, I don't agree. That's all.

      Palestinians were obligated to give away some substantial part of their land.

      You don't care whether or not the majority of the people in Palestine were ok with this.  

      This is profoundly anti (small d) democratic.  It's a 19th century view of the world which holds that anybody not building battleships or steam engines simply isn't entitled to self determination.

      Thank you for answering my question concerning what you believe ought to happen if current demographic trends continue and Jews become a minority inside the state of Israel.

      Evidently, you want the same thing that happened last time this was the case.  A "solution" that disregards of the concepts of self governance and equality.

        I also don't know what the ethnic Chinese who've been moving into Tibet should do if the Tibetans ever manage to get independence. I don't have solutions for all these kinds of problems.

        I do believe that the Jewish nation, like any other nation, has a reasonable right to a homeland. So do the Palestinians.

        What do you propose Israel should do?
