Though she concedes boycott efforts by some on the left have a negative effect, she rejects calls to keep peace efforts local.01:12 01.05.16 | 4 comments
Israel declared independence after the UN voted in favor of its creation. There is no way the UN Security Council will vote in favour of granting statehood if its not the result of a negotiated agreement with Israel. They were only in Palestine because they were given a League of Nations mandate to lay the groundwork for the creation of a jewish homeland & by 1947 they decided they wanted to leave There are hundreds of thousands of jews living in land the arabs want do you think Israel will abandon them if the UN says the arabs can have the land Israel also still controls all the borders of this state & they can't travel between the 2 parts of their country without Israeli permission because they have to go through Israel. Israel can destroy this state before its born if it wants to It would be like giving the palestinians a car without an engine. Chris Israels economy is fine we are out of recession, the economy is growing & the shekel is even traded on international exchanges.
