Please correct me if I am wrong. In order to make a Palestinian State, the land must be contiguous and comprise land that was won in 1967. No Jews are welcome there and in order for this to be acceptable Arabs of Palestinian descent are allowed to move into what will then be left of Israel. This seems kind of hard to swallow. Why only land Israel won? What about Jordan and Egypt? Was not the Palestinian Mandate comprised of both Israel and Jordan? Was not Gaza Egyptian? I'm all for a two state solution, but I do not understand why Israel is the sole authority that has to create this state from their land. Nor do I understand why Israel can not declare ancient sites of major historic importance Jewish Heritage sites? I do not believe Israel is asking the mosques be removed but rather protected by this status. If UNESCO agrees with Israel's declaration both Jewish and Arab interests are served. What is wrong with that?
