Sweden knows the truth, they just can't openly admit it

Reader comment on item: A Quiet Clash at the Swedish Foreign Ministry

Submitted by Brianna (United States), Nov 14, 2014 at 22:29

"Israeli "settlements" on the West Bank (which I prefer to call "towns") render impossible the two-state solution, making it urgently imperative to prevent their further expansion."

This is nothing less than an open admission by the government of Sweden that the Palestinians are racist and hate Jews so much they cannot conceive of the possibility of living in peace. Israel is 20% Arab, and nobody thinks the Jews in Israel have to kick out the Arabs for a two-state solution, but everyone seems to just assume that the only way there can be a Palestinian state is if it is Judenrein.

If the Palestinians were really willing to live in peace and were motivated by the desire for a state rather than the desire to kill Jews, then they would have no problem with a Palestinian state that had a Jewish minority presence, just as the Israeli state has an Arab minority presence.
