People of Israel, Stand up!

Translated into English for MWN by S. B. Bombs rain again over Gaza. Tsahal is back to work.

Why the Two-State Solution is Wishful Thinking

Fez - For zionists who view all of historic Palestine as their God-given land, there is no room for a reasonable settlement to the dispute over the occupied territories of the West Bank and Gaza, for they believe that they are simply a biblical real estate endowment for the Jewish people, notwithstanding international law and UN resolutions.
