    Thanks, but we don't need 4 million Palestinians, who have been abandoned by the Arab world for 60 years. Why deny yourselves the national home that you long for just to outnumber us in our country? Is your only motive to do away with us, or do you really want a Palestinian state of your own? I suggest you establish your own state and not take over ours, and frankly, I think your new unity government should start getting it together: stop violence, and we can then leave the West Bank and you will be on your own. Then, in 2020, when we are living in peace side by side, we can discuss your becoming Israeli citizens, though I wager that you will prefer to live in Palestine, which will, if you work as hard as we did, be a thriving country enjoying joint business ventures, cooperation, and economic ties with Israel. Or perhaps you would like to consider a Middle East confederation with us? We will see. The sovereign state of Israel will still be here in 2020 to discuss it with you.
