We Jews have always looked to Israel as our promised land. The dates 586 BCE and 70 CE (the destruction of the first and second Temples and the start of the Diaspora communities) are etched into the collective Jewish mind, and we end each Yom Kippur and Passover with the saying: “Next year in Jerusalem.”
But in many respects, we Jews found our promised land when we first stepped foot on American soil (Boston, 1649, Solomon Franco), and later when we came in larger numbers during the 1800s (250,000 Jews by 1880). For the first time, Jews had a home country devoid of a history of Jewish expulsion or systematic Jewish bloodshed. For the first time in history, Jews had a country that – from the beginning – gave de jure acknowledgement to the right to practice to Judaism and the right to be an equal citizen as a Jew.
Is it about who worship the true God or does it come down to ordinairy and simple greed?
Yitzhak Rabin - “Practically the only way to dry the swamp of radical Islam is through economic development and an improved standard of living.”
Yitzhak Rabin - “I enter negotiations with Chairman Arafat, the leader of the PLO, the representative of the Palestinian people, with the purpose to have coexistence between our two entities, Israel as a Jewish state and Palestinian state, entity, next to us, living in peace.”
Yitzhak Rabin - “Of all hands in the world, it was not the hand that I wanted or dreamed of touching, ... We, the soldiers who have returned from battle stained with blood, we who have seen our relatives and friends killed before our eyes, we who have attended their funerals and cannot look into the eyes of their parents, we who have come from a land where parents bury their children, we who have fought against you, the Palestinians - we say to you today in a loud and clear voice Enough of blood and tears. Enough. ...The time for peace has come.”
The P.L.O. could run Gaza peacefully as they do in the West Bank.
My solution is that one of these [nations] need to make a sacrifice in benefit for their own offspring (future).
Israel need to be made by all the Western and un nations to go back to 1948 borders
but this will never happen there will never be peace
i overheard a jewish solider mocking palestinian protesters saying things along the line of "you guys have no idea whats coming, Five years and you'll be out of here"
What I posted is, I think, a 2 state solution to the problem, 2 nations living autonomously side by side with trade and peace.
Of course there are bad apples on both sides, and these need to be addressed as well.
