    Jimmy Carter's one state solution is frequently dismissed and ridiculed. But it may be the only solution.

    In a two state solution, we divide land between an intermixed population of Muslims and Jews, so it is bound to end up unfair to at least one of them.

    The one state solution avoids this problem, and creates a shared administration instead.

    This may be similar how the American civil war was resolved with a new single administration.

    So, why does everyone oppose a single state solution to Israel - Palestine? Can it be that because everyone needs war, rather than some piece? This would be an interesting study.

    Well given that we already have three states, Gaza, Israel and Jordan I don't see why we need another. Gaza has only to apply and it would receive recognition..

    The fact is statehood isn't the Arab Muslims goal. The destruction of Israel is their goal.

    Jimmy Carter is a rabid antisemite who supports a one state "solution" which would be rather final.

    Israel would be overrun with Arabs who want nothing more than to kill Jews.

    So, is the Muslim - Jew radicalization maximized? In that case this is interesting, because all the money that is needed to run wars is in the hands of Israel, and the Muslims can only bet on oil money, which is a lot less stable for cash flow. If the state administration is shared, and the vast majority of the people are Jews, as is now, then why and how would the Muslims keep on successfully killing Jews?

    Jews lived there before Muslims settled it, so what do the Muslims want to destroy? The state administration of Israel, or the physical Jew people? Or, more importantly, is the guess correct, that there is no way to tell apart a state administration from its supporting majority populous? I though Israel maintains the Arabic language as one of its state languages.

    Actually it is the Jews who successfully kill thousands of non-Jews under their rule on a regular basis.

    The Muslims and Christians of Palestine are the native people that converted to Christianity and Islam, many have ancestors that practiced Judaism. The Israelis are Europeans that colonized Palestine.

    No, the Jewish religion / race has never had any European roots.

    But the European Zionist Jews were Europeans that converted to Judaism. You weren't aware of that? There is no Jewish race. An Inuit or a Chinese can convert Judaism.

    "Surprise: Ashkenazi Jews Are Genetically European

    "All told, more than 80 percent of the maternal lineages of Ashkenazi Jews could be traced to Europe, -
    "The simplest explanation was that it was mainly women who converted ...Jews actively converted both men and women among local populations at this time
