Israel-Palestine map



It is becoming ever more difficult to feel supportive of Israel.
.
The pictures above do not show the roads and barriers that separate Palestinians from their land and friends.
.
Roads criss crossing the area forbidden to Palestinians, roads patrolled, guarded, off limits.
.
Continued illegal Israeli settlement building continues to this day.
.
Add in controls everywhere and one can understand that this situation will not have a happy ending.
.
Fanatics on both sides will ensure this.
.
There could still be time to resolve through compromise. 
.
The majority of people on both sides have said they want peace and resolution of this issue.
.
Sadly for all parties concerned the people are seldom listened to.
.
One has to feel sorry for such intransigence in the face of objective reality.
.
Add in the Arab spring and the changing face of Arab governments in the neighbourhood and voila!
.
A disaster waiting to happen.

Also the readers should know, that there was never a Palestinian state name Palestine,
THe Ottoman Empire ruled the territory 1517-1917
and then the British ruled here 1917-1948.
The Arabs that came here came from Syria, Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon.
Most of them were never "Palestinian"

and if you want to check the numbers, maybe you might wanna look here:
