    Who do you support?

    IMO-

    I support Jews to have their own place to settle, but if they lost the land in a war, to the victor go the spoils.

    Unless they can prove that the Bible which allows them Israel is non-fiction, I don't believe it.

    The palestinians deserve their land back, but I don't agree with their ways of obtaining it.

    How to settle this conflict? The palestinians have to agree to live peacefully with the Isrealis, but get rid of those idiotic checkpoints 1 by 1. Palestinians should not be restricted to their little patch of land, they owned all of Isreal at one point, can they not all coexist?

    Both.

    Enough calls for cessation of hostilities, renunciation of threats, historical or otherwise, FORGET ALL THE RHETORIC! Just get 'em situated, define their space, and then stand guard until they get tired of sticking out their tongues at each other.

    Infidels, my ass! All they've ever needed was a referee-can the U. N. pull it off?

    Stay tuned, more half-baked ideas are in the oven!

    It's not only the checkpoints but the settlers too. They steal the best land from the palestinians and then complain that they are not liked.

    The chances of them living peacefully in the same space are a little slim I'm afraid, I don't think it'll happen. The only chance of peace would be a Palestinian state, but even that would not be agreeable to both sides. As was said, Palestinians used to own all of Israel at one point, so to expect them to be finally satisfied when they are given their own little patch is naive. But I don't see Israel giving up too much. In fact isn't the settlement development still going on as the "road map" is discussed?

    Quick aside, I love this room - there is no forum like it on the net. I hope this room stays even though it is supposed to be about the Iraq war - it's now generally about politics and various countries' foreign policy and makes for truly fascinating reading even if I don't post here all the time. I don't think topics like these would fit well in the lounge alongside female pornstars and 3 word stories.

    No, but they would fit in Bookworld. :-"

    things are quiet until hitler decides he'd like to invade russia
    so, he does
    the russians are like "OMG WTF D00DZ, STOP TKING"
    and the germans are still like "omg ph34r n00bz"
    the russians fall back, all the way to moscow
    and then they all begin h4xing, which brings on the russian winter
    the germans are like "wtf, h4x"
    -- WW2 for the l33t

    Israrel did obtain some of the land legally by buying it from the palestinians. It is ok for israelis to live in that land. However the israelis living on the settlements in palestinian land should be deported back to their original country.

    i have to side with the palestinian underdogs
    israel responds to rock throwing kids with tank and APC units with apache air support
    if that isn't terrorism then what the fuck is
    people suicide bombing is clearly a deplorable act, but it is also clearly a desperate act.
    the israeli nation was born out of hideous abuse and now defines itself through hideous abuse.
    Unless there is a seachange in the politics of israel and their unfaultering US support, the aparteid subjugation of palestinians will continue
