When Palastinians are ready to march for a two state solution in which Israel is the nation state of the Jews and Palastine is the nation state of the Palastinains, and they both take in their own refugees and respect their own minorities, I'll be there marching right along side you. But I don't anticipate I'll be wearing out my marching shoes any time soon.
