    When you folks talk about distinct societies for Israelis and Palestinians, how do you account for Arab citizens of Israel. They're of the same stock as the Arabs in the West Bank. Aren't they Palestinian. Also, when people talk about the Israeli side (48 Israel) vs. the Palestinian side (the West Bank and Gaza) how do they account for the Arab architecture in Haifa and Jerusalem? Or the Jewish holy sites in Hebron? Isn't it possible to create a society which is committed to upholding the rights of Jews around the world, and also committed to being a state of the indigenous people who belonged to those cities before they got kicked out? (And before you start whining about radio broadcasts and the Mufti, I say not letting people come back to their homes after they fled in fear is the same as kicking them out.)Any way, I have never understand why these claims are mutually exclusive and irreconcileable. Do you fear that your penis will shrink if an Arab moves next door? What's your problem, Israel?
