    Well Dave, It?s not really about what is convenient for you pal but it?s about what is right and can stand the test of time. As a native Palestinians I don?t really wish to live in a state that discriminates against me by insisting that it?s a Jewish state. I did not immigrate to ?Israel? but it was Israel that came and took my land and imposed its colonial rule on me so I have every right to resist being a third class citizen in my own country. You then go on to contradict yourself by falsely claiming that it was the Arabs who refused the bi-national state while in fact it is Zionists like you who always insisted on Israel being a Jewish state as you have just said in your reply. As for 'Israel proper' there is no such thing since the issue of refugees, land ownership and border hasn't been settled yet to call Israel a proper state. Every inch of territory has a Palestinians owner so unless the rights of the owners are safeguarded, I can?t see how you can resolve the conflict..
