1. Merkel's 2 state solution
George Weiss ,   Teaneck, NJ   (10.04.18)
Merkel does not know the Arabs very well. They have and will use any land Israel gives them as sites for attacking Isarel. The mountains of Judea and Samaria can be used to very effectively destroy Israel. of course, this would resul in a major war. Also, if this is a solution, why did it not work when the Aarbs had control of these areas and indeed conducted a guerilla war against Israel.
2. Only Leftist-Liberals would embrace a 2 state solution
Robert Blum ,   New Albany   (10.04.18)
Merkel's solution for Israel will be even worse than her solution of having flooded Germany with countless parasitic Muslim opportunists. I read 'The Israeli Solution', by Caroline Glick, and as such the reasoning for a 2 state solution is soundly defeated in favor of a single state solution. Caroline Glick's credentials are immpecable, being a graduate of both Harvard University and Columbia University, as well as an advisor to Benjamin Netanyahu, and a former colonel in the Israeli Defense Forces, as well as a senior editor for the Jerusalem Post.
3. Merkel - Kaiser of Europe
Disillusioned   (10.04.18)
Attempting to defeat Europe that Hitler failed to do, with millions of barbaric being permitted to into Germany on the insane notion that these unskilled savages would be a suitable replacement for Germany's dwindling population.

She reckons that these same people should be living "alongside" Israel, with their eternal hate, days of rage, incendiary devices and their clearly outlined, and oft-repeated, genocidal intentions.

Nothing short of what happened to Mussolini will do for this traitorous, deluded creature. Let her go lay wreaths on the graves of the victims of her African rapist-murderer invaders and keep her grubbiy hands off of the memory of what her country did to the Jews.

The Fourth Reich has no say in the matter

You have almost nothing to offer. I am sure Siemen's and other German German companies will be happy to sell the mullah's war material.
7. Merkel: Palestinian state alongside Jewish state is the righ
lazerbenabba ,   London, England   (10.04.18)
Do you mean mother Merkel(sic) in the same way that Israel has Gaza as neighbour?
Somehow I don't think so.

Actually, Israeli sovereignty over Judea and Samaria is enshrined into international law.
By: Daniel Horowitz | December 27, 2016
The notion that there is any moral equivalence between Jews building homes in their homeland that they won back in a defensive war (after it was illegally occupied by Jordan) and brutal terrorists illegally occupying land that was never given to them, is reprehensible. But first, a brief history lesson …
The only binding resolution of international law, a resolution which has never been countermanded to this very day, is the July 1922 Mandate for Palestine. Adopted by the League of Nations, that resolution recognized the “historical connection of the Jewish people with Palestine and to the grounds for reconstituting their national home in that country.” It called for the creation of a Jewish national homeland anywhere west of the Jordan River.
Once the League of Nations was disbanded and the United Nations formed in its stead, the international community agreed to maintain all agreements and not “alter in any manner the rights whatsoever of any states or any peoples or the terms of existing international instruments to which Members of the United Nations may respectively be parties.” [Article 80, UN Charter, emphasis added] This provision wasn’t inserted by accident; it was known as “the Jewish People’s clause” at the time it was adopted in 1945 in order to enshrine the 1922 Mandate into international law.
The Mandate for Palestine adopted by the League of Nations was the last legally binding document delineating regional borders. In Article 5 of the Mandate it explicitly states “The Mandatory shall be responsible for seeing that no Palestine territory shall be ceded or leased to, or in any way placed under the control of the Government of any foreign Power.”
The Palestine Mandate (and Iraq) was given to Britain to serve as a temporary trustee based on the resolution between the four principle Allied Powers in April 1920 at the San Remo Conference in Italy, which was signed by 51 nations. It was at that conference where the world powers adopted the 1917 Balfour Declaration (which originally allocated the eastern part of the Mandate for a Jewish state as well) creating a Jewish state. This same conference that created the Jewish state west of the Jordan River also created Syria, Lebanon, Saudi Arabia, Jordan, and Iraq as Arab states.
The legality of the 1922 Mandate was adopted that same year by the U.S. Congress in H.J. Res. 360 and signed by President Warren Harding. The newly created Arab country of Jordan attacked Israel in 1948 seeking to annihilate its inhabitants and illegally occupied Judea and Samaria until 1967. That year, Israel won back the territory originally allocated for a Jewish State as part of the 1922 League of Nations agreement.
There is no such thing as “’pre-67 borders.” They were merely 1949 armistice lines between Israel and neighboring countries after they launched an illegal war of extermination. It has nothing to do with the notion of a unique Arab “Palestinian” entity west of the Jordan River. There was never any internationally recognized legal sovereign occupying Judea and Samaria from the time the British Empire fell until 1967. Jordan’s occupation of the area west of the Jordan River was never recognized. To the extent there is an Arab Palestinian state it is the modern state of Jordan, which already sucked up 77% of the original Mandate of Palestine allocated for a Jewish State under the first plan of the Balfour Declaration.
9. Uniting "Palestinians" with E.U. lovers is the right answer
Chaim ,   Israel   (10.04.18)
The right answer is for Israel to unite "Palestinians" with their E.U. lovers in Europe. Now that is a workable solution. "Palestinians" and the E.U. SO deserve each other!
10. Merkel: Destroying Germany one step at a time....
Koose E Mack ,   Great Satan   (10.04.18)
She is the last person Israel should be taking advice from.
11. An Arab and a Jewish states have been in existence in our...
Nadav Katz ,   Qatzrin   (10.04.18), alongside each other since 1946/1948: Jordan and Israel respectively. The State of Israel is an illustration of how an accommodation of peaceful coexistence may exist. Perhaps the Muslim-Arabs, the followers of Haj, Amin al-Husseini, the collaborator with the N-a-z-i-s, should learn from their former allies and come to terms with the RIGHT of the Jewish people as a people to be, to exist in its own sovereign nation-state in that which international law defines "the national home of the Jewish people"....??!!
