    Top Palestinian negotiator Saeb Erekat stated after the EU-Mideast dialogue that Palestine would soon ask the UN to endorse the establishment of a Palestinian state in the entire West Bank and Gaza Strip as the hope for national independence through negotiation with Israel was so vague.

    Palestinian leaders say they want formal recognition of an independent state based on the pre-1967 borders with Israel, which would give them Gaza, the West Bank, and east Jerusalem as their capital.

    But the move appears to be largely symbolic, as a similar declaration was made in 1988 and won the support of dozens of countries but was never implemented on the ground.

    Israel had a quick response toward Palestine’s unilateral statement. Israel Prime Minister Netanyahu warned on Sunday that Israel might take unilateral steps if the Palestinians did not return to the negotiation table.

    Analysts think that Palestine’s seemingly brave movement would bring them nothing but more lose.

    In principle, little would change. The Palestinian Authority would have real control over barely 40 percent of the land it hopes to gain in negotiations, representing major Palestinian population centers in the West Bank but little beyond that.

    Meanwhile, nothing would be solved on the thorny issues that face negotiators, such as Jerusalem, refugees, Palestinian disarmament and borders. These would simply transform from the subject of internationally backed (though not yet started) negotiations between Israel and the PA to bilateral negotiations between Israel and the state of Palestine. The issues themselves would remain unchanged.

    indeed, if they will just ADMIT that jews are superior and deserve everything then they might be allowed to avoid being Cast Leaded down the same path as North American natives.

    The palestinians are divided and confused. There is a tremendous change going on in the Middle East as Egypt and Saudi Arabia's influence is crumbling while Iran and Turkey are taking up their Ottoman-Safavid roles again. It would be very surprising seeing a deal worked out currently, as the Palestinian leverage will probably increase as the influence of US allies, and the US itself, seriously diminishes over the next 5 years.

    This is pure politics, get rid of the political leaders of the so-called palestinians, get rid of the rabble rousers, and the Arabs are content to live in prosperity with Jews.

    Fuck the two state solution, what a joke, give em an inch and they will take a mile.

    If Arabs wont live with jews than Saudi Arabia should take them, of course no smart minded Arab in Israel wants to move to Saudi Arabia, the practising sunnis are just to extreme

    are you fucking retarded? How many state based policies meant to prop up JEWS do think conveys that it's the palis who refuse to assimilate with another ethnicity? Notice, every single zionist jew on this forum REFUSES to admit that they enjoy more ethnic equality here than they ever want to see applied to israel. Give me a fucking break.

    You must forgive Shogun, it's not his fault he was born brain damaged.
    Israel gave full citizenship to every single Palestinian in the country in 1948. Those who left, presumably because they preferred Islamic law, did not get that citizenship. Too bad for them.
    Since then, some of the Palestinians who left decided they wanted full citizenship too.
    Israel decided they would not grant citizenship to just anybody.
    Darn, that sounds just like every other nation on Earth.
    The Palestinians, and anyone else who has Israeli citizenship, has all the rights of citizenship.
    But that is not good enough for the Jew hating bigots and retards like Shogun.
    No they want more.
    Too bad, there is no more. Full citizenship with equal rights is as good as it gets.

    But ignorant retarded fools don't see that and hate mongering racists don't care.

    yea.. and THAT is why the LAW OF RETURN applies to non-jews (palis) just like it does for the "let's pack the demographic" jewish population, eh?


    :rofl

    By all means.. let's see you trip up over THAT little zionist snafu, motherfucker.

    Indeed, AMERICA sure does prop up a single ethnicity for the sake of a specific ethnic identity, right? WE IMPORT WHITES IN ORDER TO KEEP EVERYONE ELSE FROM THINKING THAT THIS IS MORE THAN A WHITE NATION, RIGHT STUPID?

    :lol:


    uh. oh... my **** senses are tingling.. that must mean a jew is about to pop in and rah rah cheer your effort to polish the hebrew turd in israel... in 3...2....
