    OH NO! "MORE" Muslims are pissed! Why? Because Israel gets to choose its own Capital.

    Correct. And with regards to my OP, I'd like to add that, more accurately, Netanyahu (and maybe not Israel as a whole) sounds like he has a lot to gain from a troubled Middle East.

    The ME has been troubled for thousands of years. The only thing Israel could possibly do to make Palestinians happy would be for all the Jews to disappear. Nothing less will do, and that - not this new policy - is why the region is "troubled."

    Oh god. I've tried to edit my posts to avoid making silly generalisations about israelis and here you go making one about Palestinians.

    You are correct.

    Let's consider it this way.

    If Israel laid down all its arms tomorrow, there would be genocide.

    If Palestine laid down all of its arms tomorrow, there would be peace.

    No, there would be apartheid and occupation.

    Just a fact. Demographic science.

    Palestinian/Arab population already big, and growing faster than the Jews. At some point, Israel will have to make a choice: let the Arab populated areas, in West Bank and such, go; or try to rule, as I said, an apartheid state, forced rule by minority over majority, no different than South Africa; or Assad's Alawite rule of Syria; or the minority Sunni monarchy in Bahrain.

    They would not be able to maintain a peaceful democracy, unless they are willing to live as a minority in an Arab-majority country, where the Arabs, in a functioning democracy, would, eventually, outvote them.

    So, the only way, unless, again, the entity is partitioned into independent countries, like Yugoslavia; would be to forcibly subjugate the Arab minority and strip them of voting and other rights.

    Just the reality.

    Everytime the USA is about to create mayhem in the Middle East, Netanyahu is satisfied.

    Remember, that's the guy who advised George W Bush to launch a preemptive war in Iraq: "I guarantee you that it will have enormous positive reverberations on the region."

    Really, it sounds as if Netanyahu has a lot to gain from a troubled Middle East. It must be why he always supports the worst the US has to offer.
    Bullshit. There is no path to peace in the ME to be found by appeasing Arab terrorists.
    Thanks from Ian Jeffrey
