Does Europe deny people the right to self-determination? Do authorities bulldoze houses of people based on their race etc? It is only European in the sense that it's the same as what Nazis did.
Become a supporter of the BDS movement, which demands Israel align with Int Law and equal rights for all in the land of Israel/Palestine, not just one group.
Which solution? When did you do this? Quote it.
What on earth are you talking about? Who's threatening to push Israel into the sea? Palestinians are asking for equal rights, that's it, because they don't have any.
If i don't support the Palestinian cause then it doesn't mean that i support everything that Israel does.
Europe does not deny self-rule principles, well, in 99% of the cases.
Regarding solutions: The situation has been fucked up for quite some time. As the country with power Israel should be actively seeking a resolution because eventually it will probably loose militarily be it in 50 years or 100 years or 200 years. I just don't see how that won't happen eventually.
The problem is that Israel is not really doing it and instead wants to mantaine the status quo. The best answer beyond rhetoric that I could figure out is that Israel is afraid. Afraid to make concessions, afraid that it will be considered weakness etc. Israel knows it is partially at fault for the situation, not just because the founding of Israel but also because the wars it fought. Situation has more or less improved a bit since the days of the cold war but this Paranoia still remains and it will remain until the generation of Netanyahu goes away. I am not sure what are the exact views of the next generation after Netanyahu but for him and his peers, it is impossible to get rid of the paranoia.
So the only acceptable solution for Israel is a peace that needs to be guaranteed by some entity like NATO. Or for example all 5 p5 nations will guarantee that they will declare war on any Arab country or Palestein If they launch even 1 rocket after the peace treaty is signed. Anything short of that is not acceptable.
Since that is not going to happen then peace is hardly possible unless a miracle happens. Lack of trust and paranoia is the cause. Israel has moved the goal post over time again and again makes the situation even worse.
So BDS will not resolve this. It doesn't matter what kind of economic hardship Israel has to suffer. That is utterly irrelevant to Netanyahus generation. Basically physical safety and well being trumps prosperity. Then again, BDS is only slowing Israel growth at best.
So the only logical solution eventually will be either Israel taking all territory and everyone forgetting about the situation ever happening (This is very unlikely) or the Arab states pushing Israel in to the sea.
Something along these lines.
