Israel, Anti-Semitism, and Negotiations Without End

This is the final segment in this series.

If we use the history of native Americans as an example, perhaps in a future generation there will be memorials to the Palestinians who were pushed off their lands, the Jewish residents of Israel will feel bad about what was done, but they will get the “benefits” of living in a state without having to give any further thought to an uprising by the few remaining Palestinians.  After all, after the cleansing is complete enough, what can the people of that future generation do?

Perhaps the Israelis of the current generation should consider one difference between the native Americans and the Palestinians.  After the ethnic cleansing of Palestinians, there will still be a huge population of Palestinians outside of Israel that will harbor resentment and a desire to return to their native lands.  Isn’t that the way the Jewish Israelis managed to get the state of Israel recognized by The United Nations?
