How should we resolve Israel/Palestine?
See poll, and discuss.
I'm sure Allah will sort it out!!!
Let Israel keep Palestine, and militarily defend Palestine against their cruel manipulators abroad. Require other arab states to take an annual quota of 100,000 immigrants each year, and have our good friends in Saudi Arabia buy them all homes, and subsidize their wages in their new jobs, matching US minimum wage here. A lot of arabs would see Palestinians as cheap labor, find work for them, and they would have a better life than hissing and spitting at Israelis ever will be.
oh, and there's still millions of Jews in Russia who want to go to Israel. Wonderful. Israel can be "Moscow on the Jordan". And Israel can just show it's true colors as a Russian satellite colony, and all the stupid bible-bashing conservatives can realize it's foolish to spend billions supporting a communist puppet state just because the Bible says it belongs to the Jews. Then we won't be the fools we are, for letting communists manipulate our foreign policy like we don't even know what's going on.
There is no resolving that situation.
Israel is located in the worst possible place it could be. Around an area where they are hated. But they value the land for historical/religious reasons and aren't going to leave so here they are. The people who were there before don't appreciate it and attack them and they attack back and the cluster-f cycle continues and probably will well after my lifetime.
I hate them both and a pox on their houses (their govt. and leaders, not the average citizen).
Let Israel keep Palestine?? So you want them to annex the West Bank??

Answer: There are roughly 2 million Palestinians living in Israel of the ~8. There are 4 more million living in the West Bank, 2 million in the Gaza strip.
2+4+2 = 8 million Palestinians, with 6 million israelis (not to mention the citizens that are not particular right-wing Israeli politics).
Hence, they are occupying the lands of the West Bank to shoo-away as many Palestinians as possible, so when they DO annex the territory, their democratic state will not be jeopardized.
If Israel wants to maintain a democracy, then the Palestinians would certainly win the election.
Some food for thought. I am of the opinion that israel will never become 1 state.
How will all of this affect the Black Sea?
