    Jewish for an overwhelming part of its history, right up to the mid-1860's. The real colonialists were the Romans first, then the Muslims. You speak nonsense Ibrahim. Once the Pals and the Arab world confront the reality that Jews pre-dated Islam by thousands of years, that they never left voluntarily, that the Muslims who settled in Israel, little by little, murder by murder and threat by threat, completed the job that the Romans began, of disbersing and eliminating "the Jews", then there will be an opportunity for peace. Not giving in to extreme demands that endanger the Jewish state, is not delay or unsubstantial. On the contrary, it is the Pals who delay, who have pre-conditions that are premised on the false notion and that they are totally victims in this awful dispute. Israel previously had a settlement freeze and it made no difference. And Israel withdrew from Gaza without a settlement freeze pre-dating the withdrawel. Time to confront reality.
