What we need to be is a real peace broker or simply butt out if we can't do it and we continue to use AIPAC as our guide for ME policy
Jews have a right to their Biblical land and Arabs have a right to be treated like human beings too, now where in this equation did we fail to put together a solution?
That is EXACTLY what I am saying! But our foerign policy is completely opposite of what it should be.
NOW HERE IS MY SOLUTION:
There should be NO country called Israel. There should be NO country called Palestine. The whole Israel and Palestine territory should be dissolved and demilitarized. The name should be changed to "HOLY LAND" as Jews, Muslims, as well as Christians all have a right and claim to that land. Boundaries should be respected for each religion and religious shrines for all religions defended.
A peace-keeping teams comprised of both the WEST and EAST should be based there permanently to defend the 'Holy Land". Armies of all countries should be included in the peace keeping force and this force should NOT be governed by the US or UK. It should be governed by elected leaders in a manner consistent to that of the United Nations and the leaders changed every 2 years. This should be a police state. No police should exist and all the police work should also be done by the peace keeping military force.
Jews, Muslims, and Christians would live in peace. Nobody would be above anybody else and all would have the same rights. Any nation or a group of people that would even try to destabilize this should be annihilated by the peace keeping force. Justice for all inhabitants would be served military style. This would also become one of the greatest tourist attractions in the world IMO. I will be visiting there soon, hopefully.
