    In 1948, Palestine was forced to give up 57% of its land by the UK and the UN; we should do the right thing and endorse the 1967 boarders (another concession from Palestine). Israel keeps saying that these boarders are un-defendable. Well I think Israel did pretty well during the1967 and subsequent wars with far less sophisticated and destructive weapons; plus they illegally added nuclear weapons to their arsenal. Negotiations, are you serious? For How many decades have they been “negotiating”? Those that favor negotiations involving Palestine, Israel and the U.S favor the status-quo (aka Israel). Israel had the opportunity last year to show that it was serious about negotiating; Israel chose to illegally build settlement in occupied Palestine instead. Israel and the U.S love nothing more than the status-quo because it allows Israel to steal more Palestinian land and the U.S politicians gets votes from the Jewish lobby. The U.S and Canada are no longer hiding how bias they are on favoring Israel at the expense of Palestine. The U.S and Canada know that for the last 40+ years Israel illegally built settlements. Palestine rightfully got sanctioned for resolving to terrorist acts and violence against Israel and then Palestine got nothing from decades of negotiations. Now they may face sanctions from the U.S for peacefully stating there plight to the UN; witch is in every nations fundamental rights. As long that the US keeps using its UN veto in favor of Israel, NOTHING will change.
