Israel Nightmare– A Binational Sate?

The Israel government has been playing the West Bank card for years using the argument it must be settled in order to provide their nation a barrier against attack. In adopting this stance, Israel has presented Palestinians with a dilemma, if they accept the loss of a good part of the West Bank, the Palestinian state that will emerge lacks coherence. Senior Palestinian negotiator, Ahmed Qurela, said if Israel continues being stubborn and refuses to evacuate the West Bank and restore 1967 boundaries, the Palestinians will simply abandon their desire for an independent nation and become part of Israel. “If Israel continues to oppose making this(a Palestinian state) a reality, then the Palestinian people and its leadership (would be) one state, a binational state.”

Given the higher birth rate among Palestinians, it would take one, or at the most two generations, for the state of Israel to contain a population in which Muslims were the majority. Somehow, one doubts this is the end goal of the people of Israel. During the 1930s, many Jewish leaders discussed with Arabs the concept of a binational state and eventually abandoned the idea due to fears Jews would become a minority. Is it time for Israel to accept the reality of 1967 borders or gamble on what will happen in a binational state?

    My suggestion is you should run to the nearest psychologist because you are one mentally ill individual. Do you ever read this rambling rubbish?

    POLITICALLY CORRECT AND POLITICALLY HONEST WEB BATTLE SITES
    The vast majority of the politically-correct web sites resemble Pravda in their Marxist propaganda subversive to the family, Christianity, nationalism, and the Constitution; and their distortions of American history, and censorship of opposing information. Earlier they supported either Leiberman Neo-Lib Hillary or Podhoretz Neo-Con McCain; now, after Hillary’s shocking defeat by the Kennedy Liberal, Obama, these Crypto-Neo-Marxists are desperately united behind McCain.
    Predictably, when Obama is finally elected, they will cunningly strive to make him serve their political and economic interests. They will stop their slandering and hate-baiting, and start slavishly ingratiating themselves; then systematically subject him to intensive psychological conditioning, political coercion, and bribery. Some, in early anticipation of Obama’s imminent victory, have already started deserting McCain, back-stabbing Bush, and seeking refuge in mock patriotism.
    The politically defeated New York Times, Boston Globe, Washington Post, and USA Today leading these strategic changes are coming up against a powerful new defensive Zeitgeist that is emerging in America. With it, the Age of Politically Correct Speech is ending, and an Age of Politically Honesty Speech is starting. This wonderful patriotic escalation in the Cultural War, a historical turning point, suggests that their change in subversive strategy will provoke increasingly stronger counter-offensives on the many politically-honest web battle sites.
