The fact remains that most Israelis have absolutely no idea whatsoever what goes on in the occupied territories and if they did perhaps they would have a different opinion. The fact also remains that although there are Jews from more than one hundred different countries living in Israel the problems that are caused by extremist settlers are not from Sabras but from the Americans who have moved to religious and extremist settlements and for some reason, after moving to Israel in their 30's and 40's feel that the Arabs who lived on the land they expropriated have no rights anymore to that land. The demographics are not in Israels favor. Either a binational State which would mean the end of Israel or to maintain the status quo where Palestinians are treated like garbage in a giant prison. I am not a leftist. I think Israel should never give back the Golan but I do believe that a two State solution is in Israel's vital security interests as much as it in the Palestinians.
