            The history of Jews always involving in immigrations to get better opportunity or avoid persecution
            which many jews abandon their "homeland" to move to foreign lands. Look at history in Bible (in
            Exodus, if this is true) when they left Egypt, Jews immigration to Babylonia, Persia, and new
            immigration to East Europe, then after WWII to United States. Probably when America became
            third world country they might move to China too.

            They should stop talking about this nonsense. They'll never have peace there.Biden is just over
            there to divert everyone's attention from the health care proposal so that the fool obama can try to

            This thing IS about the BIBLE, because in it gives the boundaries for Israel to Abraham as the
            Promised Land for him and his descendants. Isaac was the legitimate heir being through Sarah his
            wife. Hagar was his concubine wife and Ishmael was his heir also, but he was given other lands

            The two state idear is just more Apartheid, one state with peace and Justice for all jew and non-

            Both the Israelis and the Palistinians can take whatever hard headed stance that they want, and
            can never achieve peace if that is what they want, but the U.S. and the rest of the world should stop
            all support for the region, be it financial or military, until real and concrete steps are taken to
            implement a peaceful two state solution.
