It's interesting how, once again, you're dispatching your defense minister to do the job that normally a foreign minister would do. Perhaps it's time for a new foreign minister. - Comment - Israel News | Haaretz Daily Newspaper

    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.
