Agree or Disagree? Israel should annex the west bank & make everyone living there into Israeli citizens?

And that gets them to recognize the state of Israel?
Half of our own Arabs don't recognize Israel and some of which still collect welfare. What prevents those of the west bank from doing the same? We already have enough of the ones from our southern district stealing and making demands for things that we can't get, and those in the north who publically mark Anakba day.
No wonder these people need to be heavily oppressed. Why would Israel unoppress the west bank?

We have nations that are clearly Christian nations. And many of them persecuted the Jews. We have nations that are clearly Muslim nations. And many of them persecuted the Jews. Jews have been treated like second class citizens, if treated as citizens at all. They have had to pay excessive taxes, had their property seized and been kicked out of many nations. They are banned from entering some nations today. The only way they can feel safe is to have their own nation. One nation. Israel. If they annexed the west bank and made all the Arabs citizens, it would not be too long before the Jews are a minority within their own nation. The Palestinians have one of the highest birth rates in the world so that is a clear and real danger. The only way Israel can survive as a Jewish state is by having a majority of the population be Jews. There is no way they are going to take in the West Bank and make those Arabs citizens.

you dont understand what is israel and what the country was built for.
israel is country built to be a sanctuary for the jews. israeli jews in israel never get to feel or see anti-semitic acts except for the news.
have you ever heard someone use derogatory name to jews ? in israel they do not even exist. no "you stupid jew", "kike", "big nose", "greedy", "rich", "control everything" or whatever else. swastikas exists only on history movies that are shown in schools or movies.
when palestinians will claim themselves as full citizens, they will also get the right to vote, which will get them very high influence in the government and at some point possibly an arab prime minister.
at that moment israel will lose all meaning and there wont be any need for israel to exist.
israel is a jewish country. if you like it or not, this is how it is.

It is not going to happen. Israel is a Jewish state. There are already Palestinian Arabs that are citizens. There are even some Knesset members who are Palestinian but, Israel could not survive as a democracy if there were more Arabs than Jews.

I suppose that should be a matter for the Israelis to decide!
