Palestine II

A new person, Shafiq, entered into the discussion on Palestine last week. In his last comment he posted this link to an interesting article. I'd like to discuss this article. One of the things that I find difficult is sifting through the news. Is it even possible to find unbiased news?

Also, a two state solution seems impossible at this point. There are too many Jewish settlers in the West Bank. In order for the West Bank to become the Palestinian state, those settlers would all have to leave because the Palestinians do not want them there.

Do any of you have any ideas of a solution to the problems in Palestine? Personally, and all fairness aside, I wonder if it wouldn't be better for Israel to just end this by taking over completely. Is that naive?

Political Burn Out

I have really been struggling with political burn out. There was some activity this weekend on the Palestine post that has piqued my interest so I am feeling the urge to get back to posting here. I need to get caught up to speed on current events and do a little research first. I hope to post in a day or two.
