    Whether a religion has a right to a piece of land is irrelevant. The point is that the Israelis want this kind of recognition because it assures them that the Arabs will not try to "drive them into the sea." The point is to offer what both sides want from each other. Furthermore, it is historically accurate that Jewish kingdoms did exist in this region in antiquity, but that does not negate the property rights of people currently living on the land, and it will be done on the understanding that no side has a greater claim than the other, thus neither side can expel the other. I didn't make that sufficiently clear. In broader terms, this is what has been, and is being, discussed throughout the peace processes. Eventually, this kind of deal will have to be passed if the 2-state solution is the one desired, otherwise I will need to re-post 10 years from now, which sadly is what I believe will happen. The point of my post was to see whether the people who frequent the talkback sections agree with, what is ostensibly, the fundamentals of the peace process. Otherwise, I'm not sure what we're all talking about. But thanks for the response anyway.

If Merkel also criticizes Israel, life is not a piece of cremeschnitte

The Israeli reaction to Der Spiegel's report on the German chancellor's frustration with Netanyahu was ridiculous, even Orwellian; as if Israelis were aliens who had just landed from another planet.

The fighting highlights how Russia is winning at the West's expense, and underscores the paradox in which the West (together with Russia) focuses on ISIS while Assad regime continues to kill Syrian civilians in much greater numbers.
