...I agree that world opinion does have an effect - evidence the UN vote. So I cant predict how this would play out, except to note at the end of the day everyones attention will be back to Syria and Egypt, as usual. And there is a fair likelihood that Israel will launch a preemptive strike on the Syrian chem weapon stockpile. All of this may take the pressure off of Israel regarding the "settlements".
An attack on Syria (or Iran for that matter) would certainly distract attention from the settlements.

Do you ever see peace in the area, in our lifetimes or beyond?

That alone might keep me from ever wanting to live over there.

Plus the heat.

HughBe-- doubt that as God, in my view, would make someone a billionaire if it would bring glory to his name. Billionaires as a rule would not qualify.
God exists only "in your view" and in your mind. You alone get to decide what he would and wouldn't do or think. That is because you and your fellow followers of the myth have created him in your own minds.

Yes the Muslims have also got bitten by the "nationalist" bug form the western nations.
What we are seeing before us is the result of the same bug.
If European Nations can become one nation on the basis of Christianity (it is a well guarded secret though, they do not speak so in public and news media and electronic media does not comment on it much).... then why can't Muslim nations join on the basis of Islam.
Thats fine, but please leave us Jews out of it (your conflict with the Christians).

All we want is our land as per our ethnic roots. And if the local Arabs are nice (i.e. no missiles or suicide bombers) then they can get their homeland as well, right next to us.

Lets leave out "the pushing the Jews into the sea" part of it, or any neo-Islamic nationalism.

Pessimistically, I dont think the chances are good. Too many pawns. Too much socialization. Both parties have to value life first over martyrdom, and its not clear that the majority of one of the parties does.

The weather isnt so bad. Only a third of the country is desert, you know. And there are beaches.

Also, despite what you hear on the media, the country is very safe. Very modern. More modern than the US - probably more like Asia.

Last time I checked, the Palestinian Authority was not a muslim nation or a refuge for all muslims. Their authenticity was based upon the refugee crisis, not religious pilgrimage. Perhaps that is part of the problem there. Confused goals.
Are Muslims a people? What are your rules of descent? Your initiation rites? I think of Islam as a expanding world religion, like Christianity, without the trappings of a people with a historical ethnicity.

Ans.
How can you say that, considering the fact that the land was to be taken from us and we had to be driven out, how come we do not look at the terms of the Covenant?
In which court of the law, the covenant would be kept secret and the party which is to be evicted will not be shown the covenant and comment on it?
Religious or non religious, let us see the terms of covenant and find out what religious or non religious duties were imposed on both parties.
If one party is clearly violating each and every term of that covenant, then their claims have to be rejected, summarily by any court. Unless the court could be one of the Kangaroo courts!!
How come a reasonable person like you, becomes so unreasonable when we discuss something so simple, so trivial and so basic.
If the people wanted to return to the land of covenant, to establish a truly religious society, the one which their covenant demanded, it would have been a totally different situation.
The propblem that you have in mind is not connected directly to the terms of the covenant. Frijoles captures the root of the problem i.e. NUTTY and CORRUPT men. This is the problem.

A majority of Americans say that if the country goes over the fiscal cliff on Dec. 31, congressional Republicans should bear the brunt of the blame, according to a new Washington Post-Pew Research Center poll, the latest sign that the GOP faces a perilous path on the issue between now and the end of the year.

"Herd mentality describes how people are influenced by their peers to adopt certain behaviors, follow trends, and/or purchase items. Examples of the herd mentality include stock market trends, fashions in apparel, cars, taste in music, superstition, religion, home décor, etc. Social psychologists study the related topics of group intelligence, crowd wisdom, and decentralized decision making."

Fair is fair. Have been to The Vatican.
