I think most people that aren't Palestinians favor a two state solution but that's not a realistic goal as long as the Palestinians remain devoted to the complete destruction of Israel. Since most people also don't favor the extermination of the Palestinians (because, unlike them, we aren't savages), we end up at a stalemate, of sorts, doing the same old thing while waiting for the Palestinians to finally abandon terrorism and recognize the state of Israel, at which time a two state solution actually becomes realistic.All of them? No. Most of them? I recon. And what's the alternative that Israel is pursuing? No Palestine but palestinian ghettos with a fence around them scattered across Israel? What is the actual plan?
Israel sends food and medical supplies to Palestine and builds schools and hospitals there, which the Palestinians just use to send rockets to Israel. A genuine two state solution was on the table from the very beginning and the Arabs flat-out declined to even consider it.
So the Israeli Knesset passed a bill to retroactively legalize thousands of homes in the west bank and unauthorized ones as well (so beyond where existing settlements are). But i'm not posting here to get into that.
It passed the Knesset in a vote of 60-52 after a very contentious debate. The Attorney General is likely to fight it and I don't think it will be upheld in the Supreme Court. It just goes to show that at least in Israel there is debate when it comes to their relationship with the Palestinians, which is non-existent within the power structures in the United States. That same bill would probably be passed unanimously in Congress.
You're projecting again.LeVeL;n3543584 said:You remind me of a woman I had to deal with for work once. Her response to my finding errors in her work was "I right, you wrong" and she wouldn't discuss it any further.
You might want to start with something other than "no one can prove me wrong" if you don't wish to create the impression that all of this is deeply personal to you.LeVeL;n3543588 said:And you've taken us off-topic again and made this personal. Try to focus on the topic at hand for once.

Other things that would be just as pointless include trying to convince him that gun regulations can make sense. Discussing politics with LeVeL just doesn't work if you disagree with him.prizrak;n3543599 said:You might want to start with some facts that refute his claims.

The difference is that I don't see this as a competitive sport where you insult the opposing team and its supporters.prizrak;n3543605 said:Well I could really say the same about you, at least on guns. You also tend to stick to your opinions.
