According to this source:

http://www.jiis.org.il/.upload/shnaton_C0113.pdf

--Arabs alone made up 36% of Jerusalem's total population, and this was back in 2011.

100% - 36% = 64% < 75%
I stand corrected. In Jerusalem the Jewish population is 62% and the Arab Muslim population is 35% (and not above 80% as the original poster wrote that I was responding to).

So as long as the Palestinians follow the equation of peace+acceptance=land, then they will have a state. If they continue to treat israel like an enemy, they won't.
Not true,there is nothing to be negociated,the UN already have resolutions for the whole territorial issues,so the israelis deceiving the world and are buying time, building more settlement

There is no such thing as a Muslim Jew.
They are two totally different religions.

Again, they likely mean Arab Jews (sephardim/Mizrahi).

This is more of an ethnic than religious issue, and it goes back quite a ways.

Where in United Nations Security Council Resolution 242 says that Israel must withdraw to the 6/4/67 lines?

No, Resolution 242 asks peace for land. There is nothing in 242 that says that Israel is "occupying" Palestine (Which would suggest that Palestine is a sovereign country. After all.. We are trying to create a Palestinian country after all) Further more, the resolution tells us that Israel will hold on to the land until a peaceful negotiation is made. No peace, no land.

Ever heard of a Christian Jew? They are Jews (descendants of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob) who have accepted Jesus Christ as their Messiah. If there can be a Christian Jew, there can be a Muslim Jew, since Orthodox Jews have a lot more in common with Muslims than Christians - namely they both reject of Jesus Christ as the Son of God.

No such thing. A Jew that has accepted Jesus Christ as their Messiah is no longer a Jew under the Jewish religious law.

All of the kings of Israel after Solomon, from Jeroboam to Hosea, worshiped idols and foreign gods, especially Baal. When the Assyrians conquered Samaria, the capital of Israel, it was because God punished the Jews for their unbelief. So the Jews who worship Baal are still Jewish, but the Jews who accept their own Messiah are not?
