"Jewish State"? Seeking a Palestinian state while refusing a Jewish state makes absolutely no sense, I don't get it. I wish Abbas would be more clear as to what the objections are. "Israel has Jews and other people, and this we are ready to recognize" Won't a Palestinian state have Palestinians and other people? Sounds to me like at the end of the day, everyone is going to realize just how many non-issues have caused so much bloodshed. At the very heart of the matter lies Jerusalem, God's City, and the sooner people stop trying to conquer it to make a name for themselves and recognize it as God's City the sooner unity will be acheived. And the world can begin to follow its model. Only one thing needs to be understood here; What did God say? And how long does God's Word stand? Messiah said, "Heaven and Earth may pass away, but my Word will never pass away." The Word He was referring to is the Word He taught from and the Word He spoke. Take nothing away, add nothing.
