Richard: There already is a Palestinian state, it's called Jordan. All of the legal instruments and documents regarding the Palestine Mandate clearly say that Jews are allowed to settle anywhere in the mandate close to the land. And Judea and Samaria is their traditional home. The 2nd holiest city in Judaism is Hebron. There was once a sizeable Jewish community there in modern times, but many left after the constant muslim attacks on Jews culminating with the 1929 genocide of Jewish students in Hebron. Same goes for East Jerusalem. Jews were in the majority in East Jerusalem until Jordan captured East Jerusalem in 1949. The Jordanians expelled all of the Jews there and no Jews were allowed in East Jerusalem. Jordan destroyed 58 Jewish Synagogues in East Jerusalem and bulldozed a section of the Mount of Olives Cemetery. They used the headstones for latrines and paving stones. Jordan also built apartment houses and moved in hundreds of Jordanians from the West Bank, which is in violation of the Geneva Convention. The UN was completely silent regarding this. Ever wonder why the UN, muslims, EU, etc. have never brought the "settler issue" to court? It's because they do not have a legal basis for doing so. Additionally, there is the question as to why there is already one Arab and one Jewish State, which is Jordan and Israel, and why the Arabs are demanding 2 arab states and a Jewish-Arab state of Israel, while the Arabs demand their states be Jew free. Btw, Jordan occupies 80% of the Palestine Mandate, while Israel occupies only 16%. The original Mandate for Palestine directed that the entire area was for the Jewish state and not 16% which also includes 20% of the population of Israel as Arabs, The fact that no Jews are allowed in the Arab sections of the Palestine mandate clearly show the Arabs being the true Apartheid States and not the Jews.
