    So this is the left media and Palestinian plan: get the land, make an agreement to appease BHO, and later start a new international campaign on world media, claiming that Israel has no right to exist as a Jewish-Democratic state . All this with a new media bashing Israel as an Apartheid state - versus Israeli Arabs this time. To fix this would require no less than: reviewing the UN 47' decision (which specifically refers to Jews), changing the Israeli declaration of state and national hymn. Morally the Palestinian request is wrong. The Jewish people has the right of self determination, and actually has remained a coherent nation without land for 2000 years. We are a democracy - Israeli Arabs have exactly the same rights as Jews - and it is not Abbas' or international left media's role to scrutinize our Jewish state aspect. I hope a Palestinian state will be created. Then, every Israeli Arab will have the option of swapping its Israeli citizenship with a Palestinian one. The Israeli Arabs who will decide to remain Israelis will have the same duties as all others, including service in the IDF defending our borders against Hamas and Hizballa terrorists.
