    "As of today the Israeli government rules over 5.5 million Jews and 5.5 million Arabs." The Palestinians have already their own several authorities and paramilitary groups. The fact is that they didn't till now demonstrate the capability to rule themselves without falling in anarchy and terror (against each other and Israel). "That's why there will be (if not already) one state that is half Arab and half Jewish." There is only one state now: Israel, with a 75% Jewish majority and 25% Arab minority. The Palestinians in Judea and Samaria (or West Bank, if you like it more) are ruled by Fatah (quite corrupt), the others in Gaza by Hamas (quite undemocratic). And as long as the Palestinians as a whole will not accept to compromise with Israel and live in peace side by side with the Jewish state, the current situation will last, despite the one-sided efforts by the Obama administration. That's why I believe that the Palestinians must be held responsible for their own decisions and will bear the consequences of their policies.
