    I don't care too much for Palestinians, and if given the choice to assimilate with them or to seperate from them, i would certainly choose the later, but what i can't get through my thick scull is that: "You don't want them to live with you, but won't let them live without you?" Its bad enough that millions of them were forced out of their homes to live in squaller throughout the world, being treated like animals, and in some cases worse, to make way for Greater Israel but to deny them the right to statehood is truly a deep low in humanity. The Arab world is going through a sudden change, and the arab countries Israel once could count on have new islamist regimes that need controversy like this to fuel their fundamentalism. Is this truly the message Israel wants to send these new regimes?
