Is there any GOOD REASON why the Palestinians should not their own state on their own land? The US and Israel are going to look awfully stupid voting against this. I hope we're smarter than that. The UN gave Jews a state in 1948 in their historical homeland, mostly on Palestinian territiry, to make recompense for what the Germans did. It's time for stateless Palestinians to get UN recognition for a state of their own on what's left of their land. That's fair. What is Israel's intention, to rule over 1.5 million hostile Palestinians in perpetuity? Does Israel think that one day the Palestinians are going to wake up and decide to move out? To Jordan, Lebanon, Syria or who-knows-where? That's as likely as the Israelis deciding to move out to Russia, Poland, Germany or Brooklyn. Are you nuts? The settlers are more nuisance than problem. As part of a settlement deal they ought to be allowed to stay where they are in what will become Palestine. Israel has Arabs, Palestine can have Jews. It's the same thing.
