    Poland? Do these, and other countries whence Germans fled at the end of World War II, allow those Germans and their descendants automatic citizenship?

    If the Palestinians are to achieve a state--as I fervently hope they do--it will be alongside, not in place of, Israel. If that's not good enough for you, if you require Israel's destruction, please take those views elsewhere. Getting rid of Israel is not on Daily Kos's agenda.

    If, on the other hand, you support a two-states-for-two-peoples peace settlement, then I suggest you keep your eyes on the prize.

    •  umm, the Benes decree (0+ / 0-)

      is not considered to be one of the Great Moments in Human Rights.  Citing it as a precedent (let alone as a justification) would be unwise.

      •  Benes was a tremendous liberal (0+ / 0-)

        and tried to save Democracy for Czechoslovakia.

        Unfortunately he failed, twice, once against the Nazis and once against the Communists.

        •  All true but (0+ / 0-)

          irrelevant to the merits or lack thereof of the Benes Decree.  And you know it.

    •  'require Israel's destruction' is hyperbole (3+ / 0-)

      I am merely pointing out the racism in Israel's immigration (AKA 'return') policy.

      Are you fucking kidding? After Nazi Germany was expelled from those countries the Germans that lived there were also expelled. If patently offensive to compare that to a situation where Palestinians are consistently pushed off their land.

      •  No we are not kidding (0+ / 0-)

        Palestinians who live within the borders of the State of Israel vote.

        Palestinians who do not, don't. There is no real interest in them becoming Israeli.

      •  And I was wondering how long it would take (0+ / 0-)

        to compare the Israelis to the Nazis.

        Have a donut.

        •  Disingenuous. (0+ / 0-)

          AoT was responding to another American, who brought up the issue of forced transfer of populations in the wake of a war started by . . . what regime again?

        •  He brought up Nazi Germany (0+ / 0-)

          and compared the expulsion of the Germans to the Palestinians, not me.

          I am not comparing anyone in the conflict with Nazi Germany or Nazis at all.

          Your HR is completely unwarranted.
