1. The state of Israel must immediately declare null the Oslo A
The state of Israel must immediately declare null the Oslo Accords and annex the West Bank and the Gaza Strip to its territory and dismantle the Palestinian Authority. The Oslo Accords are null, because they are against the Law of God (Written Torah), because it is written in the Torah, in Numbers 33:50-53 and Deuteronomy 1:8 and 30:5, that God commanded Israel to possess all the Land of Canaan, that is the Land of Israel, that includes all the Palestine. And the state of Israel must not give Israeli citizenship to the Arabs, because Israel is a Jewish state, so that only Jews can be citizens of Israel. This is not racism, because any person, of any race or ethnicity, may convert to Judaism.The state of Israel must immediately expel the Arabs from its territory, because it is written in the Torah, in Exodus 23:31-33 and in Numbers 33:52, that God commanded Israel to expel the other inhabitants of the Land of Canaan, which is the Land of Israel, which includes all the Palestine. The Arabs invaded the Land of Israel in the year 635 CE, so that they are invaders, and must leave Israel, and return to their own land, which is Arabia. This is not racism, because any person, of any race or ethnicity, can convert to Judaism. Moreover, the Palestinian Arabs are killing the Israeli Jews, so that the Israeli Jews need to expel the Palestinian Arabs from the Land of Israel (Palestine), as self defense, in order to save their lives.
2. Maybe they can fool most of the people most of the time
DSM ,   USA   (01.07.18)
This seems like a microcosm of what is happening in most of Israel, be it politically or militarily. Politicians can't make up their minds or agree on anything and military leader's are big on talking big but than take minor steps to resolve much bigger ongoing problems.
3. One State, excluding Gaza, will be both Jewish & Democratic
Jake   (01.07.18)
67% Jewish to be exact (based on independent demographic research, debunking phony PLO statistics.

Presidential runoff system like France will eliminate the possibility of a 33% Arab minority ruling over a 67% Jewish majority.

Expat voting like in most Democracies, will allow 1.5 million Israeli expats to offset most of the new Arab voters.

There is no other long term solution but full annexation of Areas A, B & C. If the goal is true peace and equality, it can be accomplished in One State of Israel. Both populations deserve dignity and access to the entire country. Two states is a segregationist fantasy that has led to endless bloodshed.

One State, plus independent Gaza, is the right path forward.
4. Dear Sir, Oslo wasn't an "exaggeration", it was an outright
Big Lie.
Since this is not a Western we're living in, "talking" (before shooting) is crucial.
Look where/what "talking" got Arab neo-Nazis calling themselves "Palestinians" to !?
We need to talk to our own population, that have been brainwashed for so many years, about the need/ right of Israel to claim its own Land.
5. Two Systems Exist
Mark ben Josef ,   USA   (01.07.18)
In the West Bank, there are already two systems of law, one for Jews and one for Non-Jews. If an Israeli kills somebody, spouse, neighbor, Palestinian, whatever, Israeli law applies. If a non-Jew kills a Palestinian, neighbor, Jew, whatever, Israeli military law applies with vastly harsher sentences.

Jewish settlers are not subject to home invasions at 3:00 AM, non-Jews are. Jewish settlers are not subject to arbitrary confiscation of personal property, non-Jews are. Jewish settlers don't get shot in the face by a foreign army, Non-Jews can be for any reason.
6. Israel shot itself in the foot with settlements
Tom   (01.07.18)
Now it is impossible to give Palestinians a viable state and the only solution is one state: Israelarabia.
7. yes, go ahead, annex 24/7
epo   (01.07.18)
your annexations arent worth the paper.
nobody will ever recognize that.

the whole country is like a deluded kindergarten.

israel has thoroughly proven being 100% unable to solve the conflict.
you had some 60+ years now?
8. Eventually it will happen
DSM ,   USA   (01.08.18)
Conflicts like this are rarely if ever settled by talk but by a war with the winner setting the terms, boundaries, etc. Although Israel has gone to battle for 60 years the country's leaders have never seen fit to press for winning the war and so the problems continue to exist.
9. Hendel you have lost all credibility & no longer trusted
BetrayedTheCause ,   Jerusalem Israel   (01.08.18)
10. Israel needs to impose our will on defeated "Palestinians"
Chaim ,   Israel   (01.08.18)
The root cause of all Israel's problems with "Palestinians" is that we insanely allow our defeated mortal foes to push us around. Instead of imposing our will on our defeated foes, which is the normal result of victory in war, Israel insanely begs and bribes our defeated "Palestinian" foes to talk peace! If the WW II Allies had followed such a mad policy, what is left of the world would all speak German and Japanese.

Had Israel merely imposed our will on defeated "Palestinians", we would now be enjoying our third straight decade of permanent peace. We can't turn back the clock. But we can claim our land, retake our lands we foolishly abandoned to "Palestinian" poseurs, and put an end to the evil, malignant fiction of "Palestine" once and for all.

11. bibi won't annex
earl   (01.08.18)
no matter what, bibi will not annex.in fact there would be no israel today but for bold leaders like ben gurion, begin and shamir. the generals are the worst when it comes to national aspirations, so for example amridor says don't build in west bank to keep options open for when the other side is ready-like never.

bibi is afraid of trump which is dangerous because trump may try to force a deal . bibi doesn't have enough guts to look at trump say no. trump will threaten to withhold the 3 billion. as feiglin said, for certain things, israel can do without the aid.

it would have been simple to have ariel univesity under israeli law;instead this chicken refuses bennett's pleas to do it.

whether protective edge in gaza, or the iranian hit, this guy is scared in his boots and is unable to make major decisions. he means well, but his body screams out, sorry trump made me do it like he has no say. This is a commando?????!!.
12. When you point one finger, there are three fingers pointing
labib taha ,   Ramallah   (01.09.18)
Sir, before you call Arafat "arch-terrorist" could you please read the biography of your leaders? Could you answer me which artificial state is ruled by killers and war criminals? Have you ever heard of Folke Bernadotte and who assassinate him? What about dozens of massacres and ethnic cleansing carried out against a people whom you even don't recognize him as a people?!
