Because it sounds dire, the Palestinians constantly accuse Israel of racism. To what different races do the Israelis and Palestinians belong?
2. Racism
Joe Mevorah ,   Lincoln, USA   (03.18.15)
The racism label put on Israel by the Palestinians is simply empty rhetoric. Everyone accepts the fact that both groups are genetically related. However, the current narrow minded right wing Israeli government is wrong in accepting Palestinian rights to form a separate state. The world will further isolate them from the community of nations. The more things change the more it stays the same.
3. Excuse me, but ....
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (03.18.15)
... what part of the words "no 'palestinian' state in Judea and Samaria and Gaza does anyone NOT understand? The Israeli people have spoken; resoundingly so. We are not in the least bit interested in "peace" (or should I say "piece") "negotiations" with the "palestinians." The "ppalestinians" have overplayed their hand -- which was meager to begin with. They overreached. The wanted it all. They'll get nothing except a swift kick in the pants out of Judea and Samaria. We'll tolerate them in Gaza for the nonce, but if they misbehave -- out they go, too. Sorry, but Israel is done dealing with terrorists bent on the destruction of the State of Israel and the extermination of the Jewish people. And if you doubt that, check out yesterday's election returns. Of course, since the Europeans seem to love them so much, they can have all the "palestinians" they want. Europe's dying, anyway. Taking in the "palestinians" will merely hasten the inevitable. Is the European Union going to cut ties with Israel over a terrorist rabble? Not likely. Nor will anyone else. The "palestinians" are old news. And all their threats of bringing suit in the ICC -- well, go ahead. First of all, the ICC has no jurisdiction over Israel and Israeli nationals, because Israel is not a signatory to the Rome Treaty. Secondly, if the "palestinians" had anything vaguely resembling common sense, they would realize that the reason that the commission of inquiry appointed by the United Nations to look into war crimes and crimes against humanity in the recent Operation Protective Edge has only been able to come up with war crimes and crimes against humanity committed by the "palestinians." Game, set, match to Israel. Sheheyanu!
4. To: Sidney at No. 1
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (03.18.15)
The "palestinians" are relying on the ridiculous and long discredited resolution by the equally discredited General Assembly of the United Nations that Zionism is racism. The problem is, too many people throw the words "racism" and "racist" around far too loosely. Do it often enough and ridiculously enough, and you will lose all credibility. Arabs and Moslems are the most racist people on the planet. They cannot even stand themselves -- which accounts for the carnage in Syria and Iraq, don't you think?
5. Israel will not engage with Mogherini
Devorah   (03.18.15)
Until she turns that frown upside down and lets a smile be her umbrella.
6. Today's election confirms israel wants no peace.
James USA   (03.18.15)
"Israeli society has been unable and unwilling to overcome an exclusivist ethno-religious nationalism that privileges Jewish citizens..."
7. As the Pals accept 2 Pal states Israel accepts 2 Jewish ones
Sam ,   Canada   (03.18.15)
8. The best interest of Israel and America is to part ways.
sheik rattle & roll ,   USA   (03.18.15)
I just hope Bibi stays away from America and leaves Obama alone. He is officially persona non grata in The White House. America should from this point on conduct the foreign policy it sees fit without any interference from Bibi or any special interest lobby like AIPAC. America should stay out of the internal affairs of Israel. It is time that we part ways. No more peace talks, no more VETO's. It is time for Israel to do what it has to do in regards to Iran and the Palestinians. Bibi has made it quite clear that he doesn't want to negotiate with the Palestinians and we shouldn't force him, however our automatic VETO should be an automatic abstain so we don't look like we are pissing against the wind of world opinion. Israel is a very strong country that can handle any sanctions or military scenario by itself. It doesn't need the US for nothing and the US can survive without Israel. It will be extremely tough, but both countries will survive.
9. Congrats to Netanyahu
John ,   Boise, ID USA   (03.18.15)
This man will go down in history as one who has dared to achieve the “impossible.” He is not a man to be bullied around by anyone, nor cave in to the "soft" talk or the "threats" of those around him. With God's help, he will continue to be known as one of the great leaders of this century and of the last.
10. Bibi has other fish to fry ...
ORA ,   JERUSALEM   (03.18.15)
Peace process like Pisces is out of touch with reality and self-destructive
11. Tried & failed!
tiki ,   belgium   (03.19.15)
Which part of "No Palestinian State under my watch in the changed Middle East" didn't the EU understand? How long will they continue trying to revive this dead corps called the peace process? "It ain't gonna happen guys, get used to it"!

the Italian parliament did not recognized the Palestinian state and they told to the PA you better do peace negotiations with Israelis.
