    "They can and always will have the right for equal voting rights in THEIR own country ... " (Tim R) Has nobody told you yet? Palestinians have no country of their own. "Just think what they could have got ... " (Tim R) Poor you, stuck in the past. Just think, they have never been so close of getting their own country. Remember the days our leaders were denying their very existence as a distinct people? Since then their Chairman has been received in great pomp, more than once, by the President of our only ally country. And we all had to hear, not so long ago, a US Secretary of State telling us that, "The Palestinians deserve to live under better conditions than they are subjected to, and be free of the humiliation of occupation, in a state of their own." Ms. C. Rice, in October 2006. www.haaretz.com/hasen/spages/773549.html "THEY will NEVER be part of Israel, no matter how much fellows like you will jump up and down to talk of that possibility." (Tim R) "Part of Israel"? Good lord, certainly not. We have already 20% Arabs. Some of us are openly talking about 'transferring' them elsewhere. They don't say where, nor how. But - Israel having failed to separate from them in time and the Two State formula has become non-implementable - yes, part of a new country in the making, for all its inhabitants, extending from the sea to the river, where a Jewish minority is caught between two impossible choices, either to live under a Palestinian prime minister's rule, or to attempt desperately to impose its own rule over an Arab majority. That would not be the state of Israel. THAT is the "possibility fellows like [me] jump up and down to talk of". You have misread me. As so often.
