    I agree, it really does appear to be a no brainer. To the Arabs, who used to occupy the entire country of Israel (regardless what religious beliefs certain people hold about whose land it is, or who used to occupy the land throughout the centuries) the simple matter of the fact is that the Arab population was forcibly removed from the land they were living in, in 1948. Seeing as how they used to own 100% of the land, it doesn't seem like much to ask for 20% of the land back. Considering before the 1967 land occupation, Israel owned 80% of the territory. The Palestinians arent even bothering to ask for some of that land back (even though in my opinion they are entitled to ask for some of it, if this is truly a peace DEAL). They just want the occupied lands that already belong to them back in Gaza, West Bank and East Jerusalem. Whats the problem exactly? I really am stumped here.
