Neutral, technically. I opt for a two-state solution, but rather think we should stay the buggery out of it.

The Israeli's. I'm usually against reverse discrimination but in the case of the Jews it may possibly be justified in order to stop another holocaust or anti-Semitic reign of terror. Its not like non-Jews don't have the other 99% of Arabia to share with their Islamic brothers.
Israel has always been the side that has acted with the greatest civility, the greatest sense. They have tried everything go get peace. They are a secular, free, democratic republic with high levels of prosperity. They deserve the support of the first world.
They are not perfect, and they have many flaws, but on balance, they have the least.

Thats propaganda. If anyone has committed any atrocities (recently speaking), its Israel. The Palestinians are in no condition to commit such crimes, as they lack the population and wealth.

Yes, they are a rich democracy. Lets support them and look the other way on the USS Liberty Incident, the Gaza flotilla, and the fact that it is illegal for Christians to do any proselytizing. Yes, Israel land of the free!

I favor peace. Both sides are responsible for the continuation of war, therefore I can't "favor" any of them.

It's clear the root problem again is religion.

What is the reason Israelis and Palestinians will not come together and live under one country? Because they have different religions and this small difference to them means living together is impossible. They favor irrational beliefs and land over people.

Pathetic. Sometimes I think the best solution given the religious realities is to evacuate all the people from that area and sink the land into the ocean.

I have a positive opinion of and to some extent sympathize with Israelis and Palestinians alike, but think they both have to compromise and acknowledge their respective roles in dragging out the conflict. I favor the Palestinians somewhat more than the Israelis. Still, it would probably be more accurate for me to express favor for moderate advocates of a two-state-solution on both sides.

Which they do so often there is no point in posting about them.  I'd feel like I was piling on every time I did it.  The sh**t heads firing the rockets from a family's backyard (that Miles supports for some reason) don't have this problem.

Quote from:   Martha Gellhorn for The Atlantic 1961
The unique misfortune of the Palestinian refugees is that they are a weapon in what seems to be a permanent war...today, in the Middle East, you get a repeated sinking sensation about the Palestinian refugees: they are only a beginning, not an end. Their function is to hang around and be constantly useful as a goad. The ultimate aim is not such humane small potatoes as repatriating refugees.

I support a three state solution for the record - Egypt should annex the Gaza Strip and Jordan should get the West Bank. Oh, and Golan should be returned to the Syrians.

If you don't want someone to kill you, then don't steal their sh**t.  You do not have the right to steal a group of people's property, put them into ever-shrinking ghettoes, periodically go on mass murder campaigns of several thousand of them, and then expect them to be totally docile.  Although effectively I guess I'm "neutral" since I don't favor the US government having anything to do with the conflict.

Sanchez, it's nice seeing another sensible conservative on this forum. However you neglected to mention them being caught spying on the us multiple times, their vicious ad campaign against american jews or their recent insult of our President for DARING to ask the same thing every other President has. The US "special relationship" with Israel is an abusive one. They need to be kicked to the curb before they waste more of the taxpayer's money and drag us into yet another bogus war.

There's hardly one Palestinian "side" in this conflict, just as there's no one Israeli "side" either.

I support both nations to live in peace and freedom. And that means I have no sympathy for Israeli hawks, as well as groups like Hamas.
