    Your article is disturbing to me as a Jewish American. Do you really believe Israeli Jews should marry Arabs? And that such a scenario is desirable? There are not that many Jews in the world compared to Arabs-- so is your goal the further reduction in numbers of the Jewish people? If it is your goal, I think you can see why most Jews will not support such a scenario. Israel will continue to fight for its survival. When will you realize that the Arabs seek the destruction of the Jewish state, by one means or another? It is clear that the Palestinians seek the destruction of Israel and its replacement by a Palestinian state that they failed to accept in 1948. Historically, there never was a "Palestinian state", but rather Arabs who moved to Turkish-controlled "Palestine". I would recommend that Israelis open their eyes to this fact, and let the Arabs who call themselves Palestinians fend for themselves. I'm just curious , but what makes a Palestinian different than any other Arab? There is no separate Palestinian anything. The fact that Palestinians reside happily in Jordan is proof of this fact.
