    The foundation of Israel in 1948 was a big mistake, but this was only exacerbated by the Arab declarations of war. 60 years on, it's a fait accompli.

    Hamas and other likeminded organisations have to give up the insane and selfdestructive war against Israel that they can't win. Israel also has to disengage from the West Bank like it did in Gaza, dismantling all settlements there. Unforunately neither of those are going to happen anytime soon.

    Coin toss IMO, best of 5 to decide it.


    Failing that, if the children cant behave, take their toys of them. All those in favour of colonial re-invasion say 'Crusade'

    Yeah, pretty much spot on. Let's blame Britain.

    Don't blame us. We were never in favour of the 1948 partition plan in the first place.

    Pretty sure by that point Britain wanted nothing to do with the land, so what was it they wanted to do with it?

    What is the issue? The state of Israel is located on land, which does not belong to them.

    I'd like to meet the idiot who though putting a bunch of Jews in the middle of a bunch of Arabs was a good idea.

    Without sounding to much like I agree with the placement of Israel, it is historically their land anyway.

    Heh. If you advocate the expulsion of 7 million Israelis, then we might as well give Gibraltar back to Spain, or Australia back to the aborigines.
