Response to Carolina (Reply #70)

72. Your comparison does not work.

Israel is not NAZI Germany. The Palestinians are not in prison camps. They are not performing forced labor. They are not being gassed. They are free and elect their leadership.

Your analogy is simply false. It does not work. If Palestinians can elect their leaders, they can elect leaders who enter into agreements and then enforce those agreements against any Palestinians who do not want to comply with them.

Same can be said for the Israelis. They elect their leaders, and they, too, can elect leaders who enter into agreements and enforce the agreements against any Israelis who do not want to comply with them.

The Palestinians can negotiate over the borders. So can the Israelis.

The US will insure that Israel enforces its agreements. If Palestinians demonstrate that they can enforce any agreements they enter into, then there can be peace. Otherwise, there will be continued fighting.

The choice is up to the Palestinians.
