What needs to be done is shore up the peace movement in Gaza.  Gaza is given such a bad name, because of Hamas.  Combatants for Peace is back in operation again in Gaza.  Especially, Dr. Izzeldin Abuelaish, who has been on speaking engagements in the United States to promote his book "I Shall Not Hate."  He also was nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize.  There are many sources to link up with, because it is trying to give them the notoriety, which surpasses Hamas.

"Selling to anyone who is not a Palestinian is illegal."

That is a cop out. You have no problem criticizing what you feel to be illegal Israeli laws! This Palestinian law itself violates fundamental human rights of the owner, and constitutes blatant religious discrimination against the potential buyer.

"...a Jew buying land there would be expected to be doing for expanding Jewish supremacy."

That sure as heck is another generalization.

You say religious tolerance will be accepted, and say that Palestinian Jews could buy land there in your scheme, but even that would require changing the law we're talking about.

And I repeat, the viability of a society will depend far less on its square mileage, than on its good governance practices building strong group feeling and prosperity within whatever area it has.

Hi Basil,

Long time. With all due respect, now you are generalizing. (For example, "these are not just Jews. They are Israelis...). As if all Israelis, or all settlers are the same.

You say 'those buildings and houses represent intolerance in a certain way,... "
If you are that sensitive to intolerance, then the PA law making it a death penalty crime to sell your own land to a Jew or an Israeli must really offend your sensibilities!

And what if you were to learn that there never had been any houses in that particular spot, and nobody was dispossed from it? Or it was bought by Israelis or whoever fair and square? Would that change your analysis?

Moving forward, the viability of a society won't depend on square mileage. It will depend on good governance and strong group feeling. Freedom of religion will facilitate that. An absence of freedom of religion will lead to a non-viable state in Palestine, on no matter on what acreage.

Dear Mahmoud,

Maybe peace can be reached by ceasing to generalize, by implementing freedom of religion and ending religious discrimination, and by ceasing to insist that Palestine be devoid of Jews, and by accepting Jews in neighborhoods that are already predominantly Jewish, like Ramat Shlomo.

That's cool that Peace for Palestine is a work in progress. Both groups need to network for sure.

This group is promoted in our recommendations.

The majority of Israeli civilians want peace. They don't want to kill the Palestinians, but retaliate because they are constantly being attacked--schools, malls, public places are being bombed. I also have another question. Have any of the Arab countries offered to take in Palestinians? After all, they persecuted and kicked out hundreds of thousands of Jews who had been living there for centuries.

Dear Basil,

I back you that we should work with and coordinate with other groups so as to reach more people so as to make our voices better haerd.
