    Just facts. The Philistines would have had a Jew-free state in 1937 with the Peel Plan, but they violently rejected it. They would have had a state in 1948 with UN 181, but they violently rejected it (and claimed that the UN had no such mandate). They could have had a state in Judea, Samaria, and Gaza from 1948-1967 without any Jews- because the Arabs had ethnically cleansed every last one; but they violently rejected it. That's exactly when they established Fatah (1959) and the PLO (1964). They could have had a state after 1967, but instead, the entire Arab world issued the Khartoum Resolutions: A. No peace with Israel B. No recognition of Israel C. No negotiations with Israel They would have had a state in 2000 with the Oslo Accords, but they violently rejected it- as always. They won't have a state here, and if they don't stop their violence, they won't exist here anymore. They will have to go to their own land; Jordan. And you can take that to the bank- the EAST Bank.
