And what did Abbas do to move Peace talks forward? Added more pre-conditions. Israel added only 1500? They should add 150,000+.

Oh we'll. You continue to be an enemy then you will be treated like an enemy. Under international law, no one has present legal claims to the West Bank. Why? Because the borders must be negotiated with a peace agreement. But the Palestinians refuse to accept Israel as an independent Jewish state, get it? That's why UNGA resolutions are non binding.

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.

Ask any rabbi, it's a religion. You can read all about it in the Tanach.

He doesn't know what the Tanakh is. Its the OT to him (with multiple sections changed by the Church).

No, why don't you go learn something and come back when you do. Educating yourself is YOUR job. You were wrong, you don't know what you're talking about, but that doesn't stop you, does it?

A typical obamabot. Buh bye.

OP, I think you mean israelite muslims ? As in people of israelite descent who converted to Islam ? Jew, israeli, and israelite all have different meanings but because there is some kind of overlap between their definitions sometimes it can be confusing.

"Israel has announced plans to build 1,500 new settlement homes in East Jerusalem, the part of the city occupied by Israel in 1967 but claimed by Palestinians, just hours after it freed 26 Palestinian prisoners as part of a deal to restart peace talks.

Settlements built on territories occupied by Israel in the war of June 1967, including East Jerusalem, are deemed illegal by the United Nations, and Obama Administration Middle East adviser Philip Gordon reiterated on Tuesday that "the United States does not accept the legitimacy of continued Israeli settlement expansion."

U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon praised Israel's release of the prisoners, but said in a statement that settlement activity was "contrary to international law and constitutes an obstacle to peace."

An estimated 500,000 Israelis currently live in settlements in the occupied territories that are also home to 2.5 million Palestinians."

There are Palestinean Jews and there are Arab Jews.

Ive heard of there being an existence of Muslim Jews but the idea is quite complex and hard to fathom.

I know there are controversial debates as to whether Jewish is an ethnicity or a religion or both etc.
