I sympathize with Palestinians who were displaced and suffered great injustices when the modern state of Israel was first formed. They are owed reparations for the lands and homes confiscated from them. However, they have in many ways become their own worst enemy. How can Israel ever be asked to acquiesce when Hamas rockets terrorize their towns? I can't imagine there being a East and West Washington DC. The splitting a city idea sure didn't work out well for Berlin after WWII and I can't imagine it would work better for Jerusalem. There are plenty of injustices committed on both sides. Israel has a right to exist in peace, and while Hamas refuses to accept that there can never be a peaceful two state solution.
