When their leadership said long ago it was either push the Jews into the sea or the Arabs will be pushed into the desert, they're getting what they asked for and are being pushed into the desert.
The Jews should be given ALL disputed territories and the populations therein expelled to nearby Arab countries. Muslim lands extend from Morocco to Indonesia, they do not need Israel or the territories, period.
Not true. As Peled correctly points out, the Zionists only agreed to the 1947 UN partition plan for cosmetic and tactical reasons. The Zionist goal was ALWAYS to take control of all of Palestine.
Nyuk's assertion about Palestinians rejecting a two state solution in the 1930s is pure fantasy. It never happened. He doesn't know shyte from shinola.
