Keep current two state solution

Solution, what solution, there is no solution, they are 3 monothiestic forces at play that can't even solve the difference among themselves, much less among the other perspectives. This is a shining example of the major conflict that has affected world history created by religions, their politics, their followers and their leaders

This debate was not set up properly. The two sides should be, "Implement the two state solution", or "Allow Israel to continue in their 43 year military occupation of Palestine".

It's actually not biased. This is pretty much the situation at hand. Either implement the two state solution or Israel continues on with their 43 year military occupation of Palestine. How do you see it otherwise?

If Christians are suppose to be following the example of Christ they wouldn't be killing any one i.e Native Americans, Native Australians. If the Jews were so peace loving why do they have the same weapons of war as the Christians? Islam only required war to protect its existence when it was first revealed. In these latter days the striving of the sword has been ended and only striving through arguement is need to protect ones faith. Just so you know it is the Christians who need to protect Israel because it is prophecised in their teachings that Jesus will return after Israel is secure so yes it is the Christians who stand to gain all by killing Palestinians to secure the Jews in Israel.

1: israel was indeed given to the jews from god as it is written in the Bible. From the time of Joshua till now there was always a jewish population in the land. There were a few independent jewish states in the land. The judges, the united kingdom of israel, the two kingdoms of israel and judea, the hasmoanic kingdom, the period of the second temple. But there was never any other independent state in the land. After time the romans expelled most of the jews from israel, forcing them to go in other countries. But they always desired to go back to the land and through the history you many waves of mass emigration to israel. There is an unbreakable connection.
2: after the first world war the Brits conquered the land. There was a constant demand from the Jewish population to remake the Jewish state. Nobody, no arab, asked for a palestinian state. Why? Because there is no such thing as a palestinian people. Who was a famous leader? They have old historic coins? They have an anthem? What was their territory? All these questions are unanswerable because the palestinian people is an invention.
There were indeed in the land some arabs, that's true. But they were no nation at all. These arabs were in very small numbers.
In 1948 there is the foundation of a jewish state in israel. There was a jewish majority. The arab countries didn't want a jewish state next to them so they (egypt,jordan, lebanon, syria and iraq) all attacked israel. They said to the arabs living in israel to go away to other arab countries because they want to destroy israel. Then, nobody talked about Palestinians. Finally israel won this war, and also two other wars against the arab countries. It was 1967, judea and samaria and jerusalem, the heart of israel, were under jordanian control. They litteraly occupied israeli land. In 1967 egypt, syria and jordan launched a war against israel. Israel won overwhelming. They occupied the sinai dessert and they freed judea, samaria, jerusalem, gaza (gush katif) abd the golan. Then arabs understood that they can't win israel in a direct war. So they called all the jordanians in judea and samaria and the egyptiens in gush katif Palestinians. They claimed a state for their own in whole israel. First their tactics was pure terrorism. But after time they see that it doesn't work, so they go on diplomatic warfare. Israel wants peace and is ready to give their own land to the arabs. In 2006, 9000 jews were exiled from gush katif (gaza) to form a palestinian authority. They had the choice to vote, they voted on hamas. Hamas is a terrorist organisation that wants to destroy israel.
In short israel is a true, legitimate state. The Palestinians are big lie made to destroy israel.
I hope it was clear enough, if you have more questions. I'm happy to answer them.?

I refuse to vote on the options here. The only solution is one big, strong Israel.

There may be three monotheistic religions that are involved in this particular conflict, but there is only ONE religion in this conflict whose God calls for the destruction and subjugation of the other two. That religion would be Islam. The Christians and Jews have no religious compulsion to kill Palestinian civilians. As a matter of fact, if the radical Islamic element wasn't as strong of a force as it is in this matter, it would be more likely that a solution could be found.

If someone broke into you house and kicked you out should they be allowed to live there?
