  • Palestinians ALREADY HAVE THEIR OWN STATE!

    Palestine has been recognized as a state for many years. Just because other people want to claim the land doesn't mean they own it. Palestinians lived in peace within their borders until intruders came and "claimed" the area as their own, saying they are doing it for religious reasons. In fact, the Israeli's true motive is not religious, it is actually economic and for more power and dominance over regions in the Middle East.

  • Yes yes yes!

    Palestine has been recognized as a state for a very long time, yet has never officially been one. They have also been criticized for a very long time because of their relationship with Israel. M o r e w o r d s a r e n e e d e d

  • They are natives and are treated horribly

    When the state of Israel was created, it was done out of ignorance. While I fully understand that they were treated extremely unjustly during the Holocaust and suffered atrocities; the state could have been created in a different manner. When the country was formed, ethnic Palestinians were angry as their land had been taken away without their asking or comment. Then when the state of Palestine was formed in 1988, though much of the international community accepted them as a state; the US's persistence kept them out of the UN for a while and even when they were admitted they were given a status equal to that of Liechtenstein. Now Israeli security forces are constantly arresting young teenage Palestinians on charges such as 'throwing rocks' without noting that many of those cases were because the Israelis used lethal force against them. The large Jewish community in the United States continues to fund the Israeli state who continues to become more wealthy because of this funding while the state of Palestine keeps losing land to the Israelis due to illegal settlements. The state of Palestine is unable to stop these both because they are happening to such a rapid extent and because with Israeli blockades limiting trade into the country and the best farmlands being taken by the Israelis, the whole state is unable to gather enough revenue to stand up for itself. If Israel stopped its blockades, divided Jerusalem, gave fertile lands to Palestine, stopped using lethal force against minors, and stopped its illegal settlements; both states could reach a peace agreement allowing each other to coexist peacefully.

  • They have been treated unfairly and are natives to that land

    The UN gave military and weapons to Israelis but not the Palestinians that how the Jews won the war which is unfair. They were kicked out of they're homes and forced out and let the Jews move in without their permission. This was wrong and unfair for them. The Europeans told them that they would give their land back but they lied and took it away which is wrong and broke their promise. I think that the Palestinians deserve this land and that they should get whatever was taken away from them because they were treated unfairly and deserve better!!!!!!

  • There land has been stolen

    Many say they rejected peace 4 times but they only rejected cause there land was being stolen from them. Its like this. Lets say u own a house. U care for and live in that house for a while. The previous owner then wants to come back and live in the house again without buying it. U wouldn't let him just steal parts of your house away to do what every he wants. This is the reality for palistine and Israel.

  • Palestine deserves their land back

    Netanyahu is a Zionist terrorist who is stealing land and now they won't give it back to the Palestinians. I know that the Jews suffered injustices by the holocaust but why does that give them the right to oppress another religious group. It makes absolutely no sense and I know I'm right.

  • They should have their own state

    Palestiniens where their first and then Israel just invaded them. If they did a 2 state solution Israel would get every thing and Palestine would get basically nothing because of how much Israel built in Palestine. Although Palestine has been occupied by sevral empires the predominant has remained the same Palestinian arabs until Israel invaded them

  • They rejected their own state four times

    The UN offered them a state in 1948 and they said no. They didn't even considered themselves "Palestinians," which is not surprising since the entire concept of an ethnic Palestinian is made up. They are Arabs, no different than Jordanians or Saudis. The Israelis were willing to give up the West Bank in 1967, but Arabs refused to recognize Israel. They could have had a state in 2000 but Arafat launched an Intifada instead. Look at Gaza and you can see what the future Palestinian state would look like. They are not responsible enough to govern their own state. What the Palestinians have demonstrated is that they are more interested in destroying Israel than building a state. No one ever deserves a state. But with responsible behavior it can be earned. 66 years of barbarism shows the Palestinians surely do not deserve a state of their own.

  • There are multiple Arab states surrounding Israel they could live in.

    Throughout history, peoples have been displaced by other nations, as the Palestinians are now. However, never has there been a more stubborn people who will not get over it. Never has there been such state-sponsored terrorism over a strip of land. Surrounding the "Palestinian Territory" are Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon, and Syria, all Arabic Muslim countries that could support the Palestinian population.

  • No way ever

    Almost a million Jews were kicked out of the Middle East by the Muslims in 48 after the Seven nations attacked Israel. They should of kicked
    all of the Arabs out of Israel. Islam started this when they conquered Israel. The Jews are the people of that land. The Arabs are invaders. You must be crazy to deny that. They are insane people that celibrate in the streets when a Jewish baby is stabbed to death. The Muslims are the craziest people on earth crying that they are persecuted when in reality they started war on earth as their own Koran explains. That has stretched from mecca to Africa Asia Russia America and Europe. Most of the people on this planet are blind not to see this. Israel and the Jews have for almost four thousand years have stayed and never expanded in Israel. Documented in history before Muhamed murdered Jews and took their children for his wife. He was like fifty and she was like 8 that today is something people are killed and in prison for. Muhamed was a theif pedofile and murderer.

  • No - Palestinians would only deserve a state if they shed their militant Islamic hatred of Jews.

    The Jews lived on the land surrounding Jerusalem for 1800 years before being conquered and driven out by Romans and then the area was occupied by arabs in one form or another through the Ottoman empire until post WWI. Between land purchased by Jewish individuals, and UN domain, Israel was again a nation.

    The dome of the rock was built after the Jewish temple had sat on the same spot for almost 2000 years. It was destroyed by invaders. The remnants of the temple have been desecrated by those who have occupied Jerusalem - The east gate was bricked up (the gate Christ is supposed to return through), the area outside of the east gate contains a muslim graveyard (making the area unclean according to Jewish tradition for Jesus to enter).

    The Arabic movement will not be satisfied until all non-muslim peoples are eliminated or made subjects.

  • A stronger Palestine is a weaker Israel

    The Palestinians must not have their own country, even if it results in a diaspora. The Jews had their own diaspora, and it is only fair that they are able to keep 100% of their homeland. After all, they deserve a break from their thousands of years of discrimination. Leaving historical and cultural ties aside, a Palestinian state would severely decrease American/Israeli influence in the middle east. Israel is one of our closest allies, and any threat to the sovereignty and stability of Israel directly impacts the entire middle east, as well as the US. There would be more war and conflict, and the Arabs would obviously jump first to support Palestine against Israel.

  • It won't resolve anything.

    Even if the Palestinians had their own state, there would continue to be conflict. Not only that, but there are other places they can go. They choose not to because they are stubborn and want to continue the never ending fight with the Israelis. If it were as simple as providing them with their own state, it would have been done long ago.

  • That land belongs to israel... It has a cultural bond and importance to them.. They cant give up that

    Judea belongs to the Jews Throughout the history, the West Bank is called: "Judea and Samaria".
    The name "Jews" come from Judea.
    Judea was the territory where lived the Judahian Tribe - The main tribe of the Israelites. Its ancestor was Judah -one of the 12 sons of Jacob, son of Isaac, son of Abraham - The three fathers of the Jewish nation.
    They were burried in Hebron (a Palestinian city today).
    Hebron was also the initial capital of King David (who was born in Bethlehem, a palestinian city today), before he captured Jerusalem, and made it his capital (and his son, Solomon King, built there the first temple).
    Shortly, Judea (and Samaria as well) lands are the core of the Jewish nation, and integral part of the Land of Israel.
    Giving up Judea and Samaria is giving up a main part of our jewish identity and right to exist in every other part of it.
    "A nation without a past shall have no future".
    I guess the Palastinians can have a self rule in shape of autonomy (which they already have - The Palestinian Authority) but no more than that.

  • This needs to end

    Palestine must become part of Israel, only solution. Peaceful Arabs can stay terrorist s and extremist s can move or be killed. This has gone on for long enough and too many have died in the name of a state that will never be. The security issue is obsurd. What if Ohio launched missiles at other states daily? Bottom line is Israel has tried giving up land for peace every time they are attacked. Let's try you attack us, we take a little more of your land.

  • Jewish people shall prevail!!!

    Many people think jews are weak and malleable but we have the money!!! And with money comes power!! We will keep the holy land and keep out the disgusting arabs get them out out i say!!! We have been walked on for to long all throughout history we have been homeless and weak but no more, no more i say!!

  • No, not at all.

    Mostly because I said so. It also helps that I said this because I am right. Mostly because I said so. It also helps that I said this because I am right. Mostly because I said so. It also helps that I said this because I am right. Mostly because I said so. It also helps that I said this because I am right.
