"There are vast amounts of territory that are in the hands of Muslims, in the hands of Arabs. Maybe the international community can come together and accommodate" the Palestinians
--Former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee, Feb. 2, 2011
Once and possibly future GOP presidential candidate Mike Huckabee visited Israel last week. A hallmark of many politicians running for president is expressing support for symbolic measures that hold deep meaning for various ethnic or religious groups. One typical example is promising to move the U.S. embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, Israel's capital. The State Department maintains the embassy in Tel Aviv because the status of Jerusalem is still in dispute, but Bill Clinton, George W. Bush and Barack Obama all pledged to move it--only to abandon the promise once they took office. Huckabee also supported moving the embassy during his visit. But he also went further and said the Palestinians should not get any land on the West Bank--what Israelis call Judea and Samaria--for a Palestinian state. Instead, he suggested, Arabs should carve out a Palestinian state out of Arab lands, somewhere in the Middle East. How workable is this idea?
The first part of Huckabee's statement is factually correct--virtually all of the Middle East is occupied by Arab Muslims--but his proposal is completely unrealistic. If an American president were to formally propose such an idea, it would spark outrage throughout the Muslim world. It might even start a war.
The Israeli-Palestinian conflict has lasted for more than six decades because of two conflicting narratives--Jewish claims that they have roots in the land dating back 3,500 years and Palestinian claims that they, not the Jews, are the descendants of all previous inhabitants and that Judaism is just a religion, not a title to land....

I heard that many “Palestinians” were basically kicked out of other Arab countries.....I doubt they want them back.
And, as the Israeli’s never get tired of pointing out, there is already a Palestinian state. It’s called Jordon.

After all, Mexico has about the same population density as our state of Tennessee and a much longer growing season. Wouldn't it be nice if they could develop their own country rather than invade ours?
There will only be one solution, when Jesus returns and sets foot on the Mount of Olives.
All else is prelude...
I say cut Israel and Palestine in half at the middle point. All Arabs, Moslims and Christian go south, all Jews go North. An easy border to protect. Cut Jerusalem in half Too like Berlin. Built a huge wall and let NO ONE PASS THOUGH IT! For every Rocket that comes over, shoot ten (I bet the Jews could build some really big and destructive rockets if they set their minds to it). No trade, no communication—nothing. Let the Jews build a New Jerusalem with No Mosques and Churches—just a huge Temple! Let the Palis do what ever they want with their land—in a few weeks it will be a pesthole.
“cut Israel and Palestine in half”
There is no such place as Palestine.
