West Bank: "I think it should all be Israel. They are the only Nation with any claim. Jordan doesn't want it back, the PA have proven unreliable and the Pals living there dont trust them and can't un-elect them."
Gaza Strip: "Gazans are run by mask-off terrorists, they elect terrorists and support them. They carry out terrorism whenever they get the opportunity. They have no intention of living in peace with Jews."
So, what we have here, is a one state solution, where Israel controls the land from the river to the sea.
Hopefully I am making it crystal clear that this is the same thing Hamas wants.
And that's not a good look for Israel.
What's the plan to, uh, re-educate the millions of kids whose crappy apartment buildings you just blew up? Oh you don't have one?
It's not so much that Israel is a failed colony, but that it can never succeed, and it especially can't succeed with leadership that can't do the song and dance of being a responsible member of the global community.
What incentive exists for the Muslim world to make peace with Israel, that isn't almost always going to be outweighed by the propaganda value of a Zionist Occupation? My solution, I think these Zio-Kibbutzniks should just move to Oklahoma and Oregon. They'll fit right in and land is cheap. Or at least stay within the 1948 boundaries.
I can appreciate how Jewish mythology and folklore not to mention history tells the tale of a people oppressed and on the run for five thousand years -- "A tribe of humans known through ancient records to be located somewhere, on a distant, shining planet " a planet called Earth." Now that they do have a land they can call their own, they are not going to let go and went nuclear as soon as feasibly possible in perfect Mad Scientist style. It's understandable that they have a pretty big "Right To Exist" chip on their shoulder at the moment.
Speaking of South Africa, they gave up their nuclear program because it was not only a failure it was a pointless expense when you're trying to live by colonial rules in a global economy built on trade and technology, where the threat of war is intended to be mitigated by the cost of war to any warring nation's economy. This was a lesson South Africa had just learned from sanctions, of course.
Israel, being a tiny outpost, naturally sees it differently.
