Someone didn't read the fine print...

Read this excerpt first:
THE STATE OF ISRAEL will be open for Jewish immigration and for the Ingathering of the Exiles; it will foster the development of the country for the benefit of all its inhabitants; it will be based on freedom, justice and peace as envisaged by the prophets of Israel; it will ensure complete equality of social and political rights to all its inhabitants irrespective of religion, race or sex; it will guarantee freedom of religion, conscience, language, education and culture; it will safeguard the Holy Places of all religions; and it will be faithful to the principles of the Charter of the United Nations.
That came straight from The Declaration of the Eestablishment of the State of Israel, signed on May 14, 1948.

Now read this:
U.S. President Barack Obama has updated America's official vision of Israel's future to stress that the Jewish state must ensure equal rights for Israeli Arabs. His new National Security Strategy, released by the White House last month, defines the two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict in a way that differs from the terminology used by previous American administrations. According to the document, the U.S. seeks two states that will live side by side in peace and security: "a Jewish state of Israel, with true security, acceptance, and rights for all Israelis; and a viable, independent Palestine with contiguous territory that ends the occupation that began in 1967 and realizes the potential of the Palestinian people."
Mr. President, if you read the above from the document that established statehood, they already do such a thing.

Unfortunately, right now, there is no viable solution for peace until Hamas is completely out of the picture. Right now, Fatah gets the West Bank and Hamas gets Gaza but Hamas doesn't want just Gaza, they want everything. Israel will not divide Jerusalem into an eastern and a western portion. It must be united.

Also, Mr. President, the Palestinians were given Jordan. They didn't want it. If I recall, Arafat was exiled from Jordan. Was he not?
