There is a very rough equality in the number of Palestinians and Jews living between Lebanon and Egypt, the Jordan river and the Mediterranean, and most demographers beleive that in a generation the Jews will be a proportionately smaller group. And yet the region is controlled by one of these two groups - the Jews. Clearly this can't continue, clearly the area will explode into violence over and over, until there is either a Palestinian state or one state with equal rights for everyone. You can talk about the terrible history of the Jews, you can talk about 'anti-semitism', you can moralize all you want, but until this power imbalance is addressed - until we no longer have one group colonizing and controlling another - disaster will loom.
