    The UN gave the Jews a state to remedy the situation caused to them by the Germans. The UN did so largely on Palestinia­­n land. It's time for stateless Palestinia­­ns to be able to set up their own state on their own land. That is fair. 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 waking up and deciding to move out to Russia, Germany, Poland or Brooklyn. Not very realistic in either case. The settlers are not a huge problem. As part of a settlement deal they ought to be allowed to stay where they are in Palestine. Israel has Arabs, Palestine can have Jews. It's the same thing. These settlers feel a need to live in what they call "Eretz Yisrael", which is the biblical "Land of Israel". However, Eretz Yisrael does not NEED to be governed politicall­­­­y by Israel. Once the settlers realize that they get to stay on their piece of Eretz Yisrale, a lot of them will leave. Those who stay will be Palestinia­­ns and they'll get to elect their own local officials, like mayors or city councils and otherwise take part in local Palestinia­­n politics to the same extent that other Palestinia­­­ns do. Settlers,,­­,,,,,,,,,­,­,,,,,,,,­,,­,,,,,,, enjoy!
