What's your solution to the Israel-Palestine problem? Would like to hear your personal solutions!!
Stay out of it, though that is impossible!
Coming from a biblical believers standpoint, I know how it will come out in the end, and it's not pretty for anybody.
Both sides are from the same blood line, they are in effect cousins in the same family fighting each other over 'dads' inheritance, and like all such fights, only the lawyers win.
Nothing man can do will stop this eventually turning into a massive war, which will probably lead to what is known as Armageddon, and I'm not being bloodthirsty here, I wish that both sides could find common ground, but when you have one side wanting to annihilate the other, and the other determined to resist annihilation.......
There is only ONE outcome.
1. Deprogramming. Warren Buffet is giving away his billions, so I suggest that he offer full scholarships to Palestinian teens, preferably at universities in western countries.
2. Micro-loans to Palestinian women, again financed by Warren Buffet. If women's prospects rise, so do men's. Unfortunately, the opposite is not true. Before you call me sexist, look it up.
3. Voluntary depopulation. Provide financial incentive for families to remain childless longer.
It the same as all religious based conflicts, each side wallows in the arrogance of, we are right, you are wrong. Until people are educated out of the absurdity, there will be conflict.
A peaceful solution would be best but i read someone say that palestinians need to read a bible and understand it belongs to the jews because it was written in the bible?
Without taking sides, It is against the jewish religion to have their own state, In the Talmud, it states that Jews "Must Not" have their own land but instead live amongst the people.
Palestinians both christian and muslim believe in Jesus as a prophet wheras the jews see Jesus as a false profet.
Prior to 1948, Jews and arabs lived together in harmony and would babysit for each other on their respected holidays and events.
Once Palestine got divided up in 1948, they have unfortunately been at each others throats.
The jews that are living in Israel are of european descent, jews who primarily fled to Israel to escape persecution in europe from the nazi's during world war 2.
My solution would be to have arabic and hebrew, islam, christian and jewish taught in the same school's so they have a better understanding and for them to celebrate each other's festival's to build a strong unity between the 2 cultures.
America must stop providing a skirt for the Israelis to hide behind. This will end their power to defy the world through their programme of state terrorism
The world has to get over the holocaust and expect Israelis to behave like an adult independent state.
The world must stop confusing Jews and Israelis. Many Jews believe in the state of Israel, that its furure should be assured, but hate the Israeli government, who have been described by Gerald Kaufmann for example, as Jewish fascists. Many Jews, the Hassids for example, are against Jews posessing a state. They agree with Jesus that you can't serve God and Mammon.
Jews and non Jews should stop deferring to the bible, which is not the word of God but a series of records, censored and bowdlerised by self serving priests for their own political purposes.
If all this happens, then negotiations might start.
What would a SOG say about the SNAFU?
"Kill 'em all - let God sort it out."
Simple. Give Palestine back to the Palestinians. If the Jews do not like that solution, they can always go back to Europe and the USA where 95% of them came from to start with.
In some countries denying what was done to the Jews by the Nazis is a criminal offence. Despite this, those same countries continue to ignore the continuing holocaust being waged against the Palestinians by the Jews.
Leave them alone and let them have a civil war. Everyone should be focusing on their own problems.
Its going to take many generations for the entrenched hatred to fade. Integrated schools and formative educational programs may help. I think they need to focus on the youth and forget the elders. Its their propaganda that spreads fear and hatred. Just my 2 cents!
I think the Australian comedian Tim Minchin came up with a good idea: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_T4Wk9M2ObE
Re institute and enforce the two state policy drafted by the United Nations in the late 1940's. There will never be peace as long as the Palestinians are treated like secondary citizens of Israel.
The solution to the Israel-Palestine problems lies in finding the core causes of the conflict. The solution partly lies in showing humility and justice. It requires the United States and the U.K to treat both camps with equity let there be a leveled platform for peace talks, let the World come to clear terms that we are all equal and there are no "chosen few." The situation demands that we talk straight.

I support a sustainable two state solution that both can live with. I hope such a thing exists.
