Yeah, right! Not going to be any peace until they stop mowing down their neighbors they keep in a cage. Sickening!

But then at the same time bestowing some sort of nominal home-rule on the Palestinian townships denying them any real participation in an Israeli state.

Even now, Israeli-controlled areas act as a geographical barrier to Palestinian economic growth with future population pressure an issue. Trying to put two populations - continued Israeli settlement - into the same space as non-citizen Palestinians while at the same time remaining divided will prove a challenge. A number of years ago, Israel looked into trying to develop two separate road systems but finally rejected the idea as impractical.

Israel must be willing to pay an certain price in world criticism, and potentially local unrest.
Why have these "Jews" forgotten Hitler's cruelty and talk of a 'Final Solution'? Sigh...

And you chose to settle there. There is also that.

My only disagreement is how can Israel annex a place that was originally theirs?

Imagine a country the size of NJ in an area greater in size than the United States, surrounded by nations and people who OPENLY admit they would commit genocide against the Jews, in a world that openly hates and constantly condemns them in the UN for proactively wanting to stay alive, where the rule of law prevails and all faiths have the right to worship, where women are equal, who are constantly attacked by cowards firing missiles indiscriminately at her citizens Christian, Jews and Muslims.... and yet so many see israel as the bad guy in all of this.

God Bless Israel

The demographics are against them. Israel was conceived (rather naÔvely) as a Jewish state that would also be some sort of democracy. Absorbing too many non-Jews makes it very possible for it to become a non-Jewish state within a few generations. As it is, currently non-Jews make up about 23% of the population within Israel's current borders.

Add to this the realization that most of the Jews of Israel are very secular and modern western people, which means (among other things) that they are contracepting and aborting their young at an ever accelerating rate. The numbers are quite literally on the wall, the more non-Jews are in Israel the sooner that Israel will become a non-Jewish state, not through violence necessarily, but through the work of midwives and hospital maternity wards.

The only way they have any chance to preserving Israel as a Jewish state is a two-state solution, really a form of apartheid. If they want a one state solution they will either accept a plural society with all that implies, or engage in aggressive ethnic cleansing (which BTW is what they have been doing for the last four decades, creating all sorts of hostility in the occupied west bank).

But the two-state solution does not sit well with the expansionist Orthodox faction in Israel, they would like to restore the old kingdom of David as it is perceived to have been, with a border reaching the Euphrates if possible. This is the faction Netanyahu is appealing to.

Considering the demographics, if they pursue this policy of expansion and their ethnic cleansing practices are not successful, they will need to deny citizenship and the vote to the non-Jewish Christians and Muslims living within the country, and cease any claim to be beacon of democracy in the middle east.

This proposal is akin to Trump's pre-midterm 10% middle class tax cut claim.

Imagine some aliens (no matter the country/planet/whatever) invade and settle NY, kicking out every American from there, proclaiming that NY is now alien-only country based on that they lived there .. a million years ago. You for sure would love them, don't you?

Now continue your statement.
The mirror is a great invention, is it?
