22. Why is this so difficult? Two nations for two peoples. One is a Palestinian homeland...

...for Palestinians. The other is the Jewish homeland for Jews. Each recognizes the other as such. Each renounces all claims to land on the other side of their borders. Commitment to peace, etc.

I'm not saying Arabs don't belong in Israel. But Israel needs to remain a safe haven for all Jews worldwide. That's non-negotiable. I don't care if Israel can no longer be defined as a democracy for not allowing a majority to vote the Jewish state out of existence. That should never be allowed to happen.

Now to reverse the question back to you: By defining Palestine as the homeland for Palestinians, do you think that necessarily means Jews do not belong there?
