Boaz - I think you have it backwards.
Israel has a country that was once Palestine.
The Palestinians had a country until terrorists took it away from them.
Israel needs to come into the world community and accept a solution, either one equal state. Or two states side by side.
Just look at the rhetoric coming from Israel today. They are the problem, not those they hold in captivity. That is unless you feel innocent people should be held in captivity of course.
