Re: Vagabond Pages ..., Re: On the Other Hand ... ...
I really like your site & curious if you have any links to other pages you manage or could steer me towards for more stuff like yours….
Any help is appreciated ! thanks !
Thanks Melynda -- Like many, I was in contact with various pages. But this is the only one I manage. I have Polish friends who don't speak English and they asked me to share something of mine so I created an experiment: stronawilkaM.com. If it has response, I'll continue. WM
There was a Palestinian geographical space known in 1948 as Palestine when some 700,000 Palestinians were displaced from their homeland.
The idea of an international zone for Jerusalem as an important religious centre for Muslims, Jews, Christians and others did exist.
The 1967 borders have been recoginsed under international law as the boundaries for the state of Israel – yet settlements beyond the 1967 borders are still being built – and the demographic reality of having Palestinians living within the so-called “Jewish state” must mean that the voting rights of the Palestinians in a “democratic state” must require disenfranchisement of the Palestinians to keep the Jewish state – Jewish.
And if we might add the democratic election of Hamas means that one can have democracy so long as the ones elected are the ones that the status quo approves of – then we wonder why the Palestinians fight for their rights.
Awhile ago, the Abkhazia representative declared that they would recognize Kosovo if Kosovo recognizes Abkhazia. So, recognition ought to be reciprocal. The West Bank, which is ready to negotiate with Israel, gets worse treatment than the very hostile Hamas, because the Gaza strip maintains its integrity while there is never ending nibbling at the West Bank.
