83. If vilification of Jews for sport were a thing of the past, I might

agree as I once did with you.

But here we go:

When I heard and hear (especially on DU) these kinds of anti-Jewish rants and the more I hear them the more I support Jews.

And not just Jewish people but also gays and lesbians and African-Americans and "illegals" and Gypsies and Armenians and all others who are vilified based on their minority status.

Palestinians do deserve a better fate, but they have to help to make it happen. Wanting to destroy Israel does not help them. The more they talk about destroying Israel, the more Israel determines to defend itself. To some that defense may seem aggressive, but what else is Israel to do?

Israelis and Palestinians should live side by side in peace. They should negotiate their borders. If Palestine came to the table in good faith, they would have secure borders and so would Israel.

"Settlements" are easily torn down. Water and other resources are easily piped in and shared. But as long as one side basks in the glory of martyrdom and points a finger at the other, there will be no security for either side and both sides will suffer.

The Palestinians hold the keys to negotiations in their hands. The Israelis will have to negotiate in good faith. Israel is too small and vulnerable to do otherwise.

Palestinians feel that they have a lot of support from the Arab and Middle Eastern world and that as long as they continue to stubbornly refuse to negotiate in good faith, they will eventually win. I don't think they have calculated the odds very well.
