I would like a peaceful economically focused Palestinian state next to Israel. who doesn't? The problem is how many Palestinian states can they have? The way it plays in the media there is "The West Bank" run by the PLA with peaceful intentions to absorb Israel by "The right of Return" and Gaza a hostile enemy firing missilies and encouraging terrorism 24, 7. Should the UN cvonsider a Palestinian state in Syria, Lebanon, Iraq, Kuwait etc., anyplace they have settled and grown sufficient numbers to be a local majority? and what about "Christians" lumped into the equation as "Arabs" what of their aspirations? Can non-Muslim minorioties expect equality in a new sharia law governed state?
