    1. Israel is the only democracy in the Middle East

    The only democracy.

    2. The Palestinians were offered a state in 1947 and again in 2000

    They turned it down

    3. A Palestinian state would be right next to Israel

    This is not secure for Israel, which has been attacked every year since 1948 by its neighbors
    Israel wants peace but needs security first

    4. Hamas is committed to the destruction of Israel and they are in charge of Gaza, so if Israel withdraws from Gaza, it will be like Germany withdrawing from Poland during World War II and letting the Nazis run the country

    5. There are 600,000 Jews living in Judea and Sumaria (the Biblical lands of Israel)

    If there is a Palestinian state that means these Jews have to move out or be killed by their neighbors

    6. The Palestinians are divided into two groups

    Hamas controls Gaza, Fatah controls Judea and Sumaria but they can't get along with each other so there's no way they could ever form a united government that could run a country

    7. If there was a two-state solution then who gets what land

    Would it be fair
    Who decides
    And how does this avoid endless violence going forward
    How do you decide where to draw borders between hostile nations
    Nobody knows how to do this except for perhaps Britain when they drew borders between India and Pakistan (which resulted in massive violence)

    8. The Israeli-Palestinian conflict is just one part of an ongoing regional war where all countries are at war with each other (Saudi Arabia vs Iran, Egypt vs Libya, etc)

    Until that entire region calms down then nobody will be able to solve this conflict without another war starting up again immediately afterwords
    In fact, I think this would happen even if we had peace tomorrow because nobody really knows how to solve this conflict without more violence on both sides

    9. What about Jerusalem? Is Jerusalem split between Israel and Palestine or is it undivided? How do you decide that? It's one of the most important cities in Judaism, Christianity, and Islam so how do you divide up ownership of such an impor


    10. This problem has been going on for 100 years now with no solution in sight despite many attempts at solutions by various world leaders including Obama, Bush 41 & 43 , Clinton , etc

    Any solution would probably take decades before it really took hold anyway given all the complexities involved but at least we're talking about it now instead of ignoring it like we used to do forever ago when I was growing up as a child during the Cold War when everyone was focused on Russia rather than focusing on something closer to home like this issue here involving Israel and Palestine
