Whenever I discuss the one state situation, my posting is rejected, but I'll try again. "At the crux of the Russian objections were two points...the Jewish identity of the State of Israel, and that the future border between Israel and the Palestinians would reflect developments on the ground." The settlers have made such a dog's breakfast of Palestine that a viable two state solution is no longer possible. Borders reflecting facts on the ground would legitimise theft, leaving the Palestinians with a divided, truncated state, and trading good land for desert. The only possible solution now is a single state with equal rights for all. As such, recognition of Israel as a Jewish state has become impossible. Russia is merely stating the obvious. Israel does not have the courage nor willingness to stand up to the settlers, and will, therefore, eventually cease to be a Jewish state. It is truly unfortunate, and needn't have been this way. Thank the settlers.

Is rice more healthful than ice cream? Not necessarily. Are potatoes harmful? Not for everyone.
