A Mideast Peace Solution

Buzzurro and I were talking today about the political beliefs of our mutual friends.

I said "Gianni is a Communist. I guess he is against Israel, huh ?"

And Buzzurro answered "I don't know. I asked him once if he believes that Israel has the right to exist and he responded "It's there".

That to me is the solution right there to the Palestinian /Israeli problem. "It is there". 100 percent of Palestinians don't have to turn into Israeli lovers, or visa versa, but they need to know that the other side exists and is not going away. A little Realpolitik please ! There should be a 2 state solution because that's what is living on that piece of land now. 2 kinds people who each want their own state. Neither is going away.

The Palestinians need to stop demanding their one Palestinian state solution as THE solution. Israel is not going anywhere. They need to come to the realization that instead of sacrificing their children as suicide bombers and firing rockets which only bring Israeli retaliation, that it is better to suck it up, work on their internal problems or other matters and just accept that Israel occupies a space on the map. They don't have to be friends, just neighbors. After all, not all borders between 2 different states are friendly. Just look at the Turks and Greeks on Cyprus.
