"Jews in Palestine?"

Reader comment on item: Jews Living in Palestine?

Submitted by Judith (United States), Feb 6, 2014 at 14:43

Once again it seems obvious that Benjamin Netanyahu was re-elected to the office of Prime Minister because the "Stockholm Syndrome" political leaders failed to get the compromises they wanted from the Palestinian leadership. Arabs can live peacefully in Israel so why cannot Jews live peacefully in Palestinian territory?

It happens and perhaps one day newer generations will learn to accept their cousins on both sides. B. B. is a pragmatist. I do have a very hard time referring to the so-called West Bank as a place just because Jordan illegally took it over and dubbed Judah with this new name. Yes, it's still the land of Abraham and whatever people choose to call the area, ultimately it is part of The Covenant. If the "Prophets" were correct the issue of governments and names will be resolved one day and removing people from their homes is not a solution, any more than it was in Gaza. Is there no lesson learned here? i believe Israel has the right leader...lucky them!
