The selection of an Israeli student to present his position is especially unreasonable when you consider his position was that of an Israeli withdrawal from the West Bank "in the context of a negotiated peace treaty, which would recognise both Israeli and Palestinian states."
How was George Galloway supposed to debate with such a rabidly Zionist mindset?
How can you be 'pro-Israel', yet support restrictive covenants against Jews living in Judea and Samaria?
Israel's the solution and antidote to the oppressive Islamist puppets that you prefer inflicting on others throughout the world.
How sad that you're unable to get joy from anything other than the subjugation of others.In the 17th Feb 2013 edition of Israelís good news, the highlights include:
∑ Israeli scientists have developed a cure for a disease causing millions of genetic deformities.
∑ Israelís new parliament will have a larger proportion of women than those of the USA or UK.
∑ Israeli surfers saved 8 children from drowning in Hawaii.
∑ Israeli 3D printers can now print your false teeth.
∑ An Israeli company won the top award at the Munich CleanTech Conference.
∑ Israel exported 60 million flowers to Europe for Valentineís Day.
∑ The UN heard first hand about the fruits of Israeli technology.
Again, objective observers consult the law, particularly the breakup and partitioning of the Ottoman empire into multiple countries. Some are ethnically clean Muslim states.
The fact that the Nato cheerleaders have no problem with those bastions of misogyny and oppression, but instead lie incessantly about Israel, tells us all we need to know regarding the honest intention/intellectual capacity of the Nato cheerleader.
The legal foundations are easily found.
The details for the planned independent Jewish state were set forth in three basic documents, which may be termed the founding documents of mandated Palestine and the modern Jewish state of Israel that arose from it. These were the San Remo Resolution of April 25, 1920, the Mandate for Palestine conferred on Britain by the Principal Allied Powers and confirmed by the League of Nations on July 24, 1922, and the Franco-British Boundary Convention of December 23, 1920. These founding documents were supplemented by the Anglo-American Convention of December 3, 1924 respecting the Mandate for Palestine. It is of supreme importance to remember always that these documents were the source or well-spring of Jewish legal rights and title of sovereignty over Palestine and the Land of Israel under international law, because of the near-universal but completely false belief that it was the United Nations General Assembly Partition Resolution of November 29, 1947 that brought the State of Israel into existence. In fact, the UN resolution was an illegal abrogation of Jewish legal rights and title of sovereignty to the whole of Palestine and the Land of Israel, rather than an affirmation of such rights or progenitor of them.
Your statement is rather bizarre in that you can't explain why 'Israeli control' is worse than plo/hamas controlled--unless you don't like modern economies and luxuries inflicted on Arabs.
Similarly, you can't explain why it's so important to you to subject Israelis to life under a regime that opposes civil and human rights.
Do we even need to discuss the explicitly stated goal of the other governing authority of the Palestinian Arabs?
The only reason it's important to me is that the U.S. is so closely tied to Israel, and the Palestinian issue complicates our country's foreign policy. I have no desire to "subject" Israelis to living in Palestine if they don't want to. They could always move back to Israel if they don't want to be "Jewish Palestinians", in the same way there are currently "Arab Israelis".Similarly, you can't explain why it's so important to you to subject Israelis to life under a regime that opposes civil and human rights.
It's not possible to support 'international community' funded, elitist created, oppressive regimes, yet support 'self determination'.
Right McGovern. The US is infinitely closer tied to Afghanistan and Iraq, two countries for which US soldiers have been fighting and dying for years, two countries lead by US puppets. Thus, your first sentence has no foundation in reality.The only reason it's important to me is that the U.S. is so closely tied to Israel, and the Palestinian issue complicates our country's foreign policy.

Where exactly have the PLO or hamas made it clear that they'll provide Jews in their countries full legal rights, governmental representation, and civil right? Unless you can cite this, you're merely advocating the ethnic cleansing and genocide of Jews that are living on their own legally owned land, minding their own business.

They can base their rejection on their unwavering demand that Israel allow the Palestinian Arab refugees and their millions of multi-generational descedants to flood into Israel as part of any agreement.
It's all part of the goal.
