    I've been saying this for years.

    While I do not believe it would bring peace it very well might make things better between Israel and Fatah.
  4. The creation of Israel displaced nobody, all it...

    The question is about whether it's permissible to displace people who are living somewhere, declare it yours, and then expect them to honor a "two state" solution on the grounds of you being able to...

    Reality check: You're listening to a diet of pure bullshit.

    The vast majority of CO2 emissions are from the natural cycle of life. Note: Cycle. It's mostly CO2 that was absorbed earlier in the...

    Correct. This is just another aspect of the long-standing Sunni/Shia war. It gets very little press except when something dramatic happens or when someone wants to parade the victims to condemn the...

    This is even more of a fantasy. We've discussed it on here before--there's no source for new businesses. People simply don't have the assets to make them. Old ones will occasionally collapse for...

    What's the point in making an agreement that most of the people plan to not honor?[/QUOTE]
