    I don't beleive the author said anything about taking away the citizenship of Palestinian Israelis. What she said was that the border could be drawn to include predominantly Palestinan communities in Palestine and predominantly Jewish communities in Israel. She also said that referendums should be held in those communities (though I'm not sure that's necessary). Simply put, if Um El Fahem were eventually to be within the borders of Palestine it's residents could move elsewhere in Israel or continue to maintain their Israeli citizenship while residing in Palestine, just like Israeli citizens residing around the world maintain their Israeli citizenship. I'd also like to add that so much of your posting is infused with thinly hidden anti-Jewish stereotypes that you really need to think long and hard about your own anti-semetism. Zionsim is anything but "colonial settler ideology" it is a movement of national liberation of the most oppresses people in western history. The return to the Land of Israel corrected a historic wrong began by Rome and perpetuated by both the Christian and Muslim rulers of Europoe and the Middle East. The accusation that Jews see non-Jews as non-human is an old and bitter anti-semetic libel against the Jewish people. In fact, Jewish sources teach us that g-d created all humans from Adam and Eve so that no nation could claim that they are better than others and so that we'll all see their common parentage. Maybe it's time for you to look in the mirror and examine your own biases and bigotry before accusing the Jews.
