There are Jewish atheists and Jewish orthodox and everything in between... The Jews are a people with a common history and origin... Two states for two people...If you want peace this is the only formula that will work...No peace is possible without that...One of those peoples are Jews... with only one tiny state in which they can exercise self-determination. This right was recognized by the UN in1948. Occupation, wars and ugly walls since then have been responses to Arab State's and Palestinian failure to acknowledge Jews' rights or any connection whatsoever ... Arab states are no less creatures of colonialism than any other state in the region including Israel/Palestine. Lines were drawn after WWI, WWII. Historically in what sense is there a Syrian nation or Iraqi nation, or Saudi nation... These are Arab states that are creatures of colonialism..But now after some decades they have developed their own identitites..
