    Diplomats have been trying to solve the middle east problem diplomatically the same way for for 60 years. Did you ever hear that to keep doing something the same way and expecting different results is insane? The fact is the middle east problem is a LEGAL problem. The United Nations took property from Palestinian Arabs in order to create a safe haven for persecuted Jews and they never paid just compensation to the Palestinian Arabs for their losses. It`s no wonder that Arabs harbor resentment. I don`t want to hear that Arabs left voluntarily. I leave my property voluntarily all the time. In doing so my property rights are not relinquished or abandoned. You know what you get when you take someone`s property for no money? 60 years of war. The UN needs to set up a Middle East Compensation Commission where people, Jews too, who lost property due to Israel`s creation by the UN can come, present claims and get justly compensated in exchange for a release of claims.
