"Question was not whether a Palestinian state had the right to exist" - That wasnt my answer. I said Israel has the right to exist but not on Palestinian land. Israel needs to return to Israel as it has no legitimacy occupying Palestinian land. Perhaps I should ask you the same question, do you recognise that the Palestinian people deserve the right to their freedom, identity and self-determination? Dont the Palestinians deserve the right to exist just as the Israeli's deserve the right to exist. I can tell you right now this situation will not be what it is today if the same standards are applied to both sides. That Israel has the right to exist alongside a Palestinian right to exist, that Israeli civilians must not suffer the brunt of a resistance as much as the Palestinians must not suffer the brunt of Israel's oppression. Now my equation didnt help you understand so I wonder what else will, an interpretative dance perhaps?
