    There are more Jews living in the US than there is living in Israel (yes actually that's true, when you factor in the little detail that the settlements aren't in Israel). If we were willing to SERIOUSLY consider the idea it has potential. The US is huge whilst Israel is one of the most densely populated place on earth so plenty of place for people to live, its a ready made state so its like moving straight into a new home rather than having to build the house first. The security forces are loyal and well equipped so they can put down any trouble makers (something which the IDF doesn't seem so good at without killing). Its not the politically correct solution but its viable and solves all the problems. Why are the only solutions anybody talks about an unrealistic Israeli state or replacing Palestine with a binational state which isn't viable in its own right because binational states don't have a very good record and there is to much hatred. I hope I don't have to point this out, but this is not a realistic suggestion I'm just trying to show you how stupid your suggestion is. But maybe it isn't, what do I know. I'm just working on the assumption that you are very keen on the solution that relies on shipping away all Arabs, and not quite so interested in the one that instead relies on shipping away all Jews. Am I wrong?
