I agree w/ Kathy- whats your solution?
If the arab world could obliterate them they would and do try.
First, I'd study the matter from different sides before I recommended genocide, but that's the conservative Calvinistic Presbyterian in me.
The Arabs could have murdered all the Jews living among them hundreds of years ago. They've had 14 hundred years to do it, and they haven't. In fact, when the Catholics kicked the Jews and Muslims out of Spain in the late 15th century, the only people that welcomed those Muslims and Jews were Arabs, and a significant population of Israel Jews are descended from those Iberian refugees, who are called Sephardi Jews.
So, with respect I would say that you haven't given the matter as much thought as would be appropriate given your solution.
Kathy, I really don't have a solution. The world won't allow a genocide there, whether you want one or not, and Arabs are going to keep on out breeding Jews, like Catholics are outbreeding Protestants in Northern Ireland. It's pretty much a given. So we can blow off steam and call for mass murder, or something else.
I'd personally hope that Israel would see that giving up quite a bit of land that they control to get out from under the inevitable demographic time bomb would be worth it. Give up East Jerusalem, and create a contiguous Palestine. Tie it in with internationally backed peace treaties, and let the Palestinians run their own country on the Muslim model (which guarantees poverty and backwardness) and get on with living in a smaller state, which could be like a Singapore.
But no one is going to listen to me, and the hatred level will be ratcheted up until...well, as I've said, I'm a WW2 buff, and I'm pretty sure I know what's going to happen within the next 20 years.
Yes I feel horrible for the families and the innocent civilians that are getting crushed between two hard rocks. But the rocket-firing mosquitoes have to be exterminated.
We're on the same page, with the exception that I hope both sides get blistered until the act like Christians, which won't happen anytime soon. Too much mindless hatred.
