  •  Well, Israel could likewise "surrender" (1+ / 0-)

    its "right" to settle land that doesn't belong to it . . . but we won't be seeing that happen, now, will we?

    •  the UN resolution said "withdraw from (0+ / 0-)

      territories" not all territories. Israel is not evacuating all 300000 people in the West Bank. Gush Etzion is not going anywhere. Israel won land in a defensive war and isn't giving it all away. They've said tho they will withdraw from territories, but Israel will not go away, as too many in Palestine want or think will happen thru RoR or "armed 'resistance.'" And they've said they will do this when a peace deal is accepted by the aggressor in 1967 and losing party, the Palestinians. Bibi has endorsed two states and called for negotiations almost every time he gets up in public: its Abbas that won't do it.

      "Like America, Israel is a strong democracy, a symbol of freedom, and an oasis of liberty, a home to the oppressed and persecuted." -President Bill Clinton
