"#31 You say they are both engaged in it. Both desire the same end? I am pretty sure one dislikes the other state (not necessarily the people) while the other dislikes the state, the people, the religion, and wants them dead if possible."
The equivalent of Hamas on the Israeli side is the settlers and their government supporters, which includes the current Israeli head of state. And yes, they are equally as disgusting and inhuman towards the other side. I have no more regard for Israeli settlers than I do Hamas terrorists.
"Palestine, as a state, is not a problem in and of itself but Hamas is making the issue much more difficult to deal with."
Netanyahu unconditionally rejects a Palestinian state. Not "as long as Hamas is around". Unconditionally.
And I did not exagerate when I described what is going on in the West Bank. Whether you think its nefarious or not or ever get around to saying its wrong, its happening.
