It's a political matter. One can easily turn around and say that no country "exists". It's all a bunch of made up lines.

I wonder if Palestinians as a people exist in the orbit of that writer?

Israel doesn't exist as far as most Arab countries are concerned.

I’ve often wondered how you can “settle” a land which already has centuries-old cities, town, villages and millions of inhabitants. The only logical explanations for the use of the word “settler” are because those millions of current inhabitants are either invisible to you or you regard them as less than human.

I don't support jihadists or bible thumpers so this is not an issue for me

It's not a real country, just a disorganized cluster of political factions who are more concerned with manipulating their constituents' anger for their own means than trying to actually make any progress.

“Palestine doesn’t exist” is code for those five million human beings penned up in open air prisons awaiting an emancipation which never comes have no right to exist either. The problem is finding a way to make that happen that doesn’t attract too much attention.

those five million jihadists penned up don't like pagans or atheists so they will not get support from me. I saw what they did to asia after battle of nahavand.
