    By adding that Jews too have to take the pledge you proved how ridiculous it is to add anything one has to pledge to and this 62 years after the creation of the State of Israel.What about the loyalty of both Nethanyahu and Lieberman? Both of them have not only harmed the State by their incompetence but have insulted the intellect of the Jewish people as well.Draw a map of the future borders of Israel,inform the world of what land swap you want to trade with the Palestinians.Let Israelis who wish to live in Palestine keep their Israeli nationality without voting rights(except municipal)in Palestine.Allow the Palestinian State to offer citizenship to Arabs who currently live in Israel and wish to remain there but with an Palestinian passport instead of an Israeli one.Allow Palestinians, holding a Palestinian passport, born before May 15th 1948 in Palestine to have(own,rent a second residence in Israel.Declare the Golan Heights Syrian territory and lease it from the Syrians for the next 99 years for a given fee and develop it into a joint free trade Israeli-Arab zone.Form an industrial/agricultural partnership with Cyprus(both sides) and Lebanon.(Turkish water for all).Create tourist joint ventures with Jordan and Saudi Arabia for the 1.4 billion Moslims who want to to visit the Mosques in Jerusalem,before or after returning from the Hadj.Do the same with Egypt(pyramids),Palestine (Betlehem) for tourists and Christian pelgrims.Lease a corridor (trains only)to connect Gaza to the West Bank to the Palestinians. Form a new Dubai playground in TAELBA(Taba,Eilath,Akaba).Have a yearly contest for who can eat the most falafels in 15 minutes (hotdogs in Coney Island)on the beaches of TAELBA.Smell the coffee and care for all the children of the middle-east as if they were your own!!! LIVE IN PEACE.Shalom.

'I saw two masked men standing by as they burned'

A relative of the Palestinian family that lost their infant son in a firebomb attack on their home relates his attempts to rescue the victims.

Timidity in face of Jewish terror has a heavy price

The terrorists who murdered Palestinian infant Ali Saad Daobasa have exacerbated the situation in the territories to its most dangerous since the last Gaza war.

Israel’s condemnation of Pride attack is hollow

Behind the pinkwashing, it turns out homophobia in its worst forms exists within the government.
