    Richard Falk, UN special rapporteur who was denied entry into the occupied territories by Israel has some grave suspicions concerning the "new one-state solution" being considered by Israeli politicians and also a novel plan for resolving Palestine's occupation.

    "Falk, who taught international law at Princeton University, will issue a report to the United Nations this fall in which he will assert that the Israeli process of colonialism and apartheid has accelerated over the past three years.

    "He will call...for the UN to consider unilaterally declaring Palestine an independent state, as it did with Kosovo."

    If it's true Oslo empowered the PLO to negotiate international status issues, Palestinians could issue a unilateral declaration of status and seek independence, diplomatic recognition and membership in the UN.

    "The recent Kosovo advisory opinion of the World Court in the Hague provides a well-reasoned legal precedent for such an option."

    Statehood is a subjective political thing. Over 100 countries recognize Palestine as a state. Where some Palestinian politicians clamor to create a Palestinian state, the street already considers themselves to be a country.

    The street wants to end the occupation of their country They call Israel '48 occupied lands. Even Palestinian citizens of Israel say they are under occupation and call Israel '48 Palestine.

    The Palestinians, being the indigenous inhabitants of Palestine, have first rights to statehood.

    The process of colonialism that created much of the Arab Middle East.

    Israel is the only country in the apartheid Arab Muslim worlds with no apartheid. Every Israeli citizen is constitutionally guaranteed equal rights.:clap2:

    Then why is 20% of Israel's total population identified by the State as non-Jews instead of recognizing Arab citizens as a national minority group?

    Israel's leaders mirror the lack of official recognition as evidenced by David Ben Gurion stating that Arabs should be permitted to stay in Israel "to serve as water carriers" as well as Golda Meir who declared that "there is no such thing as Palestinians,"

    George, you're a moron. Much of the Arab Middle East was colonized by the British and French.

    Israel, on the other hand, is the only country in the world with international recognition and legitimacy as a state both by the League of Nations and the UN.

    Go back to sleep, fool.

    George, you're a moron. I live in Israel, where the Arab community is identified as Arab.

    Arabic is a national language in Israel. Street signs in Israel are in Arabic. There are Arab media, Arab businesses. Arab schools. Arab landowners

    There are Arab members of the Knesset. There is an Arab justice of the Supreme Court.

    You really make a fool of yourself, fool.

    How much land between the Mediterranean Sea and the Jordan River is the Jewish State of Israel entitled to?

    Simple question.

    Why won't you answer?

    The Jewish State of Israel is also the product of Western colonialism, or did you sleep through Lord Balfour's declaration?

    George, you moron, the countries of Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, Jordan and most of the rest of the Arab Middle East were created out of Western colonialism.

    Israel is the only country in the Middle East that existed prior to World War I. Twice, in antiquity.

    It was the League of Nations that established the modern state of Israel, not the Balfour Declaration, you dumbass.

    George, you like making a fool of yourself, fool?
