    The Palestinians are simply Arabs in DNA, language and culture. Arab countries (Jordan, Saudi Arabia, etc.) have a majority of Arabs/Palestinians. The reason there is no separate country for them (the "2 state solution") is that they had a country after the UN partition, but wanted to destroy the Jews, so they started a war and lost.

    This is what it boils down to me. If you want to settle an issue through war, be prepared to accept the consequences of losing that war, in regards to lost territory and sovereignty.

    Those Israelis "trembling with fear" got out their garden chairs to watch the rockets during the 2014 Gaza massacre.

    And Palestinian children have rather more to fear from Israel.

    By "Arab" I think you mean genuine Semitic, unlike the Askenazi Jews.

    The article you linked to called it a war. Big difference. Ah yes, the 2014 war (not massacre) which broke out when Palestinian terrorists kidnapped and murdered Israeli children, and then their Hamas terrorist government would do nothing.
    No, I meant Arab.

    I thought you were a musician, not a geneticist.

    Geneticist—that's a very kind word to describe someone posting this sort of stuff.
