There’s no shame in making a mistake. More often than not, … though, there is shame in not correcting a mistake.
Israel’s a tiny nation. Why carve out a Gaza, or a West Bank (once called Samaria) – Arab areas, (see the red lines) out of such a small nation?
Those who drew the boundaries after WWII, intended Israel to be a homeland for the “misplaced” the “exiled” and historically hated, Jews of the world. However, from the beginning, the intent was misconstrued and with wars and such, in the interim, this has changed. It was a mistake and it needs to be corrected!
Jews would live in peace with those who call themselves Palestinians even though they’re (related?) … Some say they’re a different religion, some say race, others “tribe”.
Palestinians, … many of them will not live in peace! Albeit this is a horrible “mistake”, but it’s an easy fix, one cannot easily tell the difference between those who will coexist peacefully, and those who will not – the problem is that some will lie, enabling them to continue to carry out internal violence, like the recent horrific murder of the Fogel Family in the West Bank; therein lies the problem.
It’s so simple, it’s a wonder why those who drew the lines couldn’t see it coming …
Why they would do such a thing as mix the two, is almost unimaginable! Were they ignorant or evil?
Many Arabs / Palestinians were known to have sided with the Nazis in WWII. Mixing Nazis and Jews? Who would do such a thing? Again, I have a hard time imagining it was ignorance; I see it as evil – either way, … nevertheless, there is a solution … a simple solution, … and it needs to be fixed and fixed NOW!
The United States continues to work for a 2-State Solution. The two states solution is a workable concept; it’s just that the nations should be, … MUST BE, significantly separated!
Palestinians should live in nations they will not go to war with – Syria, Turkey, Iran, Iraq, Somalia, Yemen, … there are any number of nations they could live in peace with … people that they do not inherently hate!
The whole thing … in American terms, … is a “Hatfield & McCoy” situation. Hatfields! Stay where you are! McCoys! You’re going to Montana!
Or rather, ….. Jews keep Israel and Palestinians … to Morocco!
