Google "Internet giant Google has changed the tagline on the homepage of its Palestinian edition from 'Palestinian Territories' to 'Palestine'. The change, introduced on 1 May, means google.ps now displays 'Palestine' in Arabic and English under Google's logo. Using the word Palestine is controversial for some. Israeli policy is that the borders of a Palestinian state are yet to be agreed." Good but daring move.

If all you want to look at is NOW and ignore the past then the fact that right NOW Israel rules the total of its country should be acceptable to you. no?


Illegal settlements. How many times do you intend to ignore those two words. You're not just ruling the country, you're invading parts that are decidely not your country.

Who decides they are illegal? What do you mean "decidedly not your country"? Why doesn't China leave Tibet?

Prove to me why Judea and Samaria belong to a country that never existed before?

The same international community that gave your country a chance in the first place.

What do you mean "decidedly not your country"? Why doesn't China leave Tibet?


Because the CCP doesn't want to. I don't excuse it. You can't try to paint me as a hypocrite, because I don't hold views to Tibet the same way you hold views to your country.

Prove to me why Judea and Samaria belong to a country that never existed before?


Again, if you are going to argue that a people must be organized into a modern nation state to be able to exist unmolested, then you must similarly argue Israel has no right to exist.

So stop it.
