Why not just split it 50/50?

Of course, the ideal solution would be to take Jerusalem away from both of them and make it an independent city-state, with equal visiting rights for Israelies and Palestinians, but that'll never happen.

BECAUSE PEOPLE ARE SO FUCKING STUPID ABOUT THEIR RELIGIONS.

Yes, I appreciate that it's not ALL about religion, but because of it (if I understand this correctly), both sides want Jerusalem and won't stop fighting and killing the other side until they get it.

Well actually the ideal thing would for the whole world to dissolve nation borders and live in ungoverned peace where everyone shares everything including their buttholes

Very good idea, trouble is too many right wing capitalists would lose too much money and power ;)

Give the Jews an equal share of space in the US. Let the Palestinians have it.

Complaints about the Holy sites? Dig 'em up and transplant them to the US. Problem solved.

Don't like it? Nuke 'em.



I'm like, totally serious.

Trouble is the Jews believe they have to go back to the Promised Land.

Not everybody gets what they want. Fact of life.

Stop fucking killing people, and we can talk. Looking at the previous map, the Jews have done pretty fucking well out of the whole deal for the past 60+ years. Maybe, just maybe, the Palestinians deserve a bit of a break?

Maybe a bit. But my "stop killing people" comment applies to both sides.

Personally I think the Palestinians deserve a big break. Having been to Jerusalem, which is a fascinating city, I actually witnessed school teachers shepherding children, whilst quite clearly carrying guns :shock:

I sympathise with both sides, but the clearest solution is to move the Jewish population well away from the Muslims, who are the majority in the region. No fault is implied, it's a simple solution akin to breaking up a fight in a playground.

Yeah, transplanting a nation is tricky, but we put a man on the moon, so there is no fucking excuse.

I'm sure the Jews would react well if they were told to get on a train to go to a new wonderful place, again.
A slight majority of a statistically worthless sample size agree.
