    Give Palestinians their land and their autonomy.

    Israel has had statehood for 60 tears!

    Palestine can not have rule over Jerusalem.

    Israel will need to be satisfied with what control it now has in Jerusalem.

    The US desires no peace in the Middle East. The Middle East kept in array gives the US billions in arms sales and the opportunity to steal oil and gas.

    Money for weapons should be redirected to construct homes and create an economy for Palestinian refugees.

    Occupied lands have been taken illegally by war. The settlers will just need to move out.

    Jerusalem does not belong to the Jews. Boy what a can of worms this attitude would open up. Are you willing to give your little parcel of America back to the natives? This is basically what you are saying. If we were to apply this reasoning worldwide what do you think would happen?

    Right on, Gus. The US has vetoed the last 29 UN resolutions against Israel's activities which, in effect, gives Israel immunity against international law at the Whim of America.

    The two-state solution will work and can be accommodated by using 1967 borders. Jerusalem belongs to Palestine, at best, or as an International city

    1. Its sticky. I would advocate a two-state solution, in which Egypt is annexed Gaza, with additional benefits to Egypt for accepting responsibility for an overpopulated, drug ridden ghetto. Self-rule implies that they can take care of themselves and not be a liability to those around them. When they ditch Hamas, they can prove that, and we'll talk. I really think that Abbas could do good things for the Palestinians, though. If Hamas exists, we would be stuck with the same situation as now, exept that Palestine is a "country" just like Lebanon or Somolia. Incidentally, Hamas keeps on rejecting two-state solutions, and therefore hope of Palestinian autonomy...So who hates Palestinians more, Israel or Hamas?

    2.I believe that was done in 1948 (by the UN, not the US, scholars). Again in 1973, when Saddat was force fed the words.

    3. Hell to the no. See 1967.

    4. Yup. Rocks to win a war when you have been invaded. Why does no one demand that Texas be returned to Mexico?

    5. Peace..its the Islamofascists who are the only ones not trying to gain peace.

    6. Tough, and sad. Their ancestors probably should not have rejected citizenship back in 1948. Under a two-state solution, they could migrate to Palestine. Or the countries that seem to care so much about them when it is convienient for their Islamofascist ambitions would integrate them into their borders and give them food and jobs and jobs when the Palestinian people are not politically convienient. The US does.

    7. Those lands were won in a war that surrounding nations provoked. Again, I have to ask, why does Israel have to capitulate to Arabs and not vice versa? Why should Texas not go back to Mexico, Puerto Rico/Guam/Phillipeans to Spain, exc?

    Israel must be forced to live by the rules it agreed to when it was admitted into the UN.

    The US needs to stop blocking UN resolutions that call Israel on it's misdeeds.

    The US needs to stop supplying Israel with arms and 3 billion dollars a year.

    The media must stop it's pro Israel bias when reporting on Middle East affairs and be honest. Public opinion would change and Israel's actions along with it.

    If the US stops it's blind support of Israel, Israel would be forced to be a good neighbor and genuinely desire peace.

    The most important step in making all of this a reality is, the influence of AIPAC must be eliminated from the US government. AIPAC is a lobby of a foreign government yet gets all kinds of special treatment within the US. If this doesn't change the Middle East as well as the US are doomed.

    Israel returns to it's 1969 borders. A separate palestinian state is formed in the West Bank and Gaza. Jewish settlements are evacuated.

    Jerusalem is split into Arab jerusalem and Israeli sectors.

    Unfortunately this will not work because the Iranians are fighting a war by proxy against Israel and the arabs will never compromise. When Israel dismantled Jewish settlements and withdrew from occupied lands Hamas just used the new non-occupied land to launch rocket attacks.

    1 ) Palestine is Justified

    2 ) OK

    3 ) Palestine Is not justified

    4 ) Jerusalem has always belonged to the Jews in my opinion

    5 ) Too bad that moral considerations are not as important as Money and profit.

    6 ) Palestinian refugees deserve to live in a free Palestine country and to govern their own lives .

    7 ) Israeli settlers are being as cruel as the Nazi were to their own people

    The Palestanians gave it to them? Or did America take it from them and give it to Israel.
