Israel is a sovereign country, therefore they are justified in acting as one!

Israel established its sovereignty on the broken backs of the Palestinians who had lived on that land for an age. They justified the construction of their state by citing ancient religious texts. But this land had ceased being theirs a long time ago.

It is true that a young generation of Israeli people now occupy half a nation and identify with that land as being theirs. Between these two contradicting values it can be determined that Jewish cities and companies should continue their existence on the land they have.

But that the nation is ruled solely as a nation for Jewish people is not morally valuable. The states of Israel and Palestine ought to be fused into a single stat. Such a proposal has failed in the past because numerous parties on both sides disagree on the details; it may be said this is an unrealistic goal. But so far as morality is concerned, the populism does not explain what ought to happen. What ought to happen is any those parties on either side which serves the perpetuation of war and death should be barred from political participation with the the threat of penalty of imprisonment for failure to comply with the new state's inclusive and secular common law..

If Israel is a souvenir, it should go on antique road show. That way we can determine it's value.
