  •  They reject ethnic cleansing (0+ / 0-)

    so it's their fault.  Even though they accept the two state solution, which is what you asked for.  This is why there will not be a two state solution, because it isn't good enough for Palestine to accept a two state solution, they must fully capitulate before negotiations begin.  Until they stay ethnically cleansed there is no deal.  Beautiful thing to build a Jewish homeland on.

    Of course, their use of violence is the only thing that's ever given them any leverage at all, and that's just a further excuse for ethnic cleansing.  Israel probably won't make it all the way from the Jordan to the sea in my lifetime, but it'll happen.  They have nuclear weapons, there's nothing stopping them.  Why would they stop when they're clearly winning?  And that's not an indictment of Israel per se, that's how this shit works.  If the US hadn't taken such a hit in Afghanistan and even more so Iraq you can bet that we'd have rolled into Iran by now.

    Maybe I'm just cynical in my "old" age, but none of these governments have an interest in peace, and they can always whip up a threat to rile people up into war.
