Those "thorny issues", like the right of Israel to exist will never be resolved. History shows that!

One of the "unresolved" issues is the
800 pound gorilla in the room that no one
from either the American news media nor the
government wants to take notice of and
that's the ancestral lands of the Palestinians
that the state of Israel has stolen.
As long as Israel occupies those lands there
will be nothing but trouble. The Palestinians
are not going to just go quietly into the night.

Israel belongs to the Isreael's because God gave that Land to them. If you read your Old Testament and any History you would know that already.The Palestinians are a bunch of Half breed Egyptians that no one wants to claim. Hope that clears things up for you.

I'm all for Israel having it's own state, but the Old Testament is not exactly a legal document.
With your arrogant attitude toward others, let's hope you are not a typical Israeli.

Just outside the town I live in are
many miles of rural lands with acreages
ranging from five acre parcels to 40 and
larger. Most of it being in scrub alder and fir,
and land only suitable for raising horses or
a hay crop. Hardly worth the taxes.

God has told me to take my wife and my two cats
and to occupy ten acres out there. I wonder if
the present occupiers will mind if I move in.

If they resist I will have to fight. They will then
be terrorists by definition.

Its true that Israel stole Palestine. But Muslims stole the whole north africa, Spain, North up to Russia, east up to the Philipines. So like yeah.

The lands that Palestine had were stolen from the Jews centuries earlier. That happens in history over and over.

It's a shame Chris Stevens didn't have Forrest Gump at his back. Obama cut a ran.
