I'm always up for a good laugh from YouTube at 5 in the morning. It's far easier to watch someone who begins history at a point that's convenient for them than to actually read.

Its definitely amateur hour.

Perhaps, you can be found needle in a haystack in once your life time but peace in Middle East was more difficult than finding needle in a haystack. Neither side has wanting compromise. Also Palestinian has two groups and Hamas group has always said they oppose any peace agreement with Israel. Hamas latest demand was its want Palestinian state along the borders established by the 1967 Middle East war. Also both sides are not wanting to compromise and follow the agreement. Any peace broker by American is fragile because both sides signed the peace agreement for to get American money.

I'm not going to get into this topic, but I changed my mind. The conflict started with the Zionists.

The violence committed by the Palestinians is not of the magnitude of the violence committed by the a military with a budget of $17 billion dollars that has 4,170 tanks, 684 aircraft, and about 160,000 members. You cannot seriously compare the two with any intellectual honesty.

Sorry, the conflict started way before it started with the Zionists, the Arabs have always, always been hostile to the Jews, I'm just not sure where your getting this, the Palestinians were always the victims in this ongoing conflict. Not even remotely close. If it weren't for the Jews would have all been slaughtered, they are surrounded by enemies, so with all the land the Arabs have, that tiny piece of space the Jews call home, all they want is to live in piece, but the silly notion that they should get out of their homeland and leave, is laughable and will never happen, but I do believe both sides have to come together and both sides have to live with one another, peace is the only way.

The majority of Israeli's want peace and accept the two state solution but the government and extreme right do not. The international community and the UN say the settlements are illegal but the Israeli's not. Trump cancelled his campaign promise to move the American embassy to Jerusalem disappointing the government who have sought to make the whole of Jerusalem its city, its capital.

The citizens of Israel do not have equal rights. If a Palestinian wishes to study abroad like in America they will be allowed but not allowed to return but a Jewish student could. A Jew can buy property wherever they wish but not a Palestinian.

They gave back Gaza and then turned it into the worlds largest prison camp and Ghetto.

If Israel is unwilling to make a two state solution then the Palestines will continue in their fight for a one state, Palestine.

It is hilarious how people think the history of violence began when the Palestinians committed acts of violence against the Israelis.

I'm not even going to get into that lie because it get so severely off topic, but I will say this, I never said, every single issue or conflict rests with the Palestinians of course not, but to think the conflict all started with the Israelis that's an absolute ruse.

Israel practices collective punishment against the Palestinians through such actions as bulldozing family houses of those Israel suspects of violence. Collective punishment is a no-no under international law. Another pleasantry the Israelis visit up on the Palestinians is multiple checkpoints, which results in such fun as Palestinian children not being able to get to their schools.

Ok, so now did you outline any of the Palestinians atrocities.....I hear crickets.

The Palestinians are much like the American colonies with the Israelis being like England. Revolutionary Americans committed acts of "terrorism" whilst fighting a more powerful, oppressive regime, yet we label them heroes. However, the same people that label revolutionary Americans heroes excoriate the Palestinians for fight for the exact same things for which those Americans were fighting.

ROFL! 

I guess it's like all the white Americans screaming about immigrants being okay because those white Americans' families immigrated 50 or more years ago. It's okay because my family did it before your family.

I will never get over the fact that the left cannot, will not or are incapable of having any discussions without talking about race. They just can't help themselves. It's the only cohesive argument that they can have to shut everyone down. Good job.

Netanyahu made his career out of saying that Iran is months away from a nuclear weapon. Here's been saying it since 1993.

The only peace Netanyahu is interested in is the colonial pacification of the Occupied Territories. Remember, this is the man who incited against Yitzhak Rabin for trying to make peace with the Palestinians and helped create the toxic political climate that led to Rabin's assassination.

And every time in the name of peace were the Israelis gave land back, what have the Palestinians done? Where is their olive branch? Don't give me that garbage that it's all the fault of Israelis! The Palestinians are also a huge part of the reason they are in the situation that they are in and as along as you have factions like Hamas unwilling to make peace or recognize the right for Israel to exist, you will never get anywhere or end this constant conflict.

PLease give Jarred a chance. This guy is a class act. If the crass commentators will not prejudge him as they have his father in law, then perhaps there will be real peace.

How many resort complexes can Kushner get for Trump's real estate companies in the next land grab? The Trump's care about one thing: more money for the Trumps.

"productive" doesn't sound good. Things are supposed to be YUUUUGE and BIGLI. Or at least GREAT!

Seriously, what's the point? Netanyahu has made it perfectly clear that the most he's willing to offer the Palestinians is a "state-minus" i.e. a South African-style Bantustan with limited self-rule. He's also said he's unwilling to give up security control of the West Bank. How can the Palestinians have their own state if they continue to be occupied by a foreign army?  

The only peace Netanyahu is interested in is the colonial pacification of the Occupied Territories. Remember, this is the man who incited against Yitzhak Rabin for trying to make peace with the Palestinians and helped create the toxic political climate that led to Rabin's assassination.
