I was referring to dividing up the West Bank into 3 parts, not making it a whole state. That would be like some country cutting up the US into 3 parts, were THEY control the borders, your natural resources, and tell you your a state, but just to make sure we are going to continue to control and occupy parts of your country. That is hardly a free democratic country.

It does not have a mandate. But it does have a master. Master can change the mandate by will.

Guess who the master is? I'll give you 3 tries

I believe the Palestinians have essentially done this. The Israelis have certainly not. Right and wrong take a back seat to can and can't.
So I take it you think it was alright for Hitler to slaughter the Jews.. well becaused he could.

I think you need to re-check your logic, its obviously faulty somewhere.

The difference is that the british took the land from the majority population, against the majorities wishes, giving the minority 90% of the land, and ONLY giving arms to the minority to control what was the majority. The reason the
Palestinians COULDNT fight back was because the british didnt allow them to have arms. Only the Israeli. I don't call that playing fair.

Your making assumptions...

Sure the Jews have tanks, helicopters, missles, etc.. Sure the Israel military fires a few missles into the west bank and thats ok becuase.. they are the military. The palestines dont have that luxury.. use a bomb to blow up a military checkpoint and your a terrorist. Fire a morter from a tank and its justified. Go figure.

Once again rstone, we MUST be living in different worlds.

Arab Legion commanded by British General did marvelously in 1948 with the arabs armed and killing all the Jews they could find. They took Jerusalem, Arab, Christian and Jewish quarters. They "almost" succeeded.

Please read history books. Ancient as well as contemporary. Then try to bring some valid arguments.
