It is highly unlikely that a one state solution could happen in Israel/Palestine for a very long time although stranger things have happened in recent years including the collapse of apartheid in South Africa ,the collapse of the banking system in the USA and the fall of communism in Russia and her satellites.

In the unlikely event of a democratic state emerging those gun totin paramilitary zionists would have to obey the law just like anyone else so the stealing of land,the random shootings and the demolition of thousands of houses in occupied territories would have to cease.

However, far more likely is the scenario of the Israeli state run by increaingly reactionary and militaristic and racist politicians and generals intent on pulverising the Palestinians.

The war crimes committed by the brave young soldiers and airmen of the IDF will not be forgotten either in Gaza and the other occupied territories or in the wider world. For some strange reason, people of whatever creed or colour, become outraged when they see pictures of young children blasted to bits by huge bombs and shellfire.

Those Egyptian doctors who have started to treat the child casualties with hideous head wounds caused by high velocity bullets cannot believe the insane cruelty behind such shootings .

The Israeli leadership tries very hard to eliminate the Palestinian resistance but although it has overwhelming military superiority thanks to US, support it still cannot achieve its military objectives. Yes, it destroyed the university,schools clinics,hospitals,the cemetery, civic buildings and apartment blocks and thousands of homes. Previously it smashed up the airport,sewage pumping stations and the power plants but it hasn't broken the spirit of the Palestinians. It has not managed to free prisoner Shalit. It did not manage to prevent the firing of those small home made rockets The Egyptians have announced that no foreign troops will be stationed in Egypt and apparently only a few hundred Hamas fighters were killed [ although thousands of civilians were maimed and around a thousand slaughtered in the air and land attacks that Hitler's luftwaffe would have approved of]. All this adds up to more slaughter and civilian atrocities the next time around with probably more policing of the beleagured Palestinian Israeli civilian population inside Israel itself.

I have a question for the Mudcat Zionists which is... What rights do the Palestinians have under Israeli rule and occupation? ifor

"What rights do the Jews have under Palestinian rule and occupation?2

You ask the question but there is no Palestinian state?

Poor beleagured and shattered Gaza is no state...merely an enclave which is attacked and surrounded at will by the Israeli military which has imposed a land,sea and air blockade for the past 2 years.

The West Bank is ruled under military occupation and Israel is further squeezing East Jerusalem and surrounding it with Zionist settlements.The Golan Heights belong to Syria and there is still some disputed territory that is claimed by the Lebanon.

I will say though that Israel Jews who have gone to Palestinian towns and cities to show their support for human rights and against the Apartheid Wall for example have received hospitality and friendship from the Palestinians.

And furthermore anti zionists Jews who have protested alongside exiled Palestinians and other supporters of a Free Palestine against the slaughter in Gaza have walked arm in arm with them.
