    Almost 30,000 V-1s were made. Approximately 10,000 were fired at England; 2,419 reached London, killing about 6,184 people and injuring 17,981.[7] The greatest density of hits were received by Croydon, on the SE fringe of London.

    Compare that to the German losses in the Battle for Berlin April - May 1945.
    (Note that this battle was between the Germans and the Soviet forces.)

    Initial Soviet estimate
    (operational total)
    458,080 killed,
    479,298 captured[8]
    Total casualties 937,378 men
    Inside Berlin Defence Area:
    22,000 civilian dead,
    about 22,000 military dead[9]

    Your proposal would either force Israel to split into two parts OR deny ISrael access to the Gulf of Eilat. Either solution is unacceptable.

    Why unacceptable to give both sides half the land?

    The 1967 boundaries should be the final boundary. Israel needs access to the Gulf of Eilat.

    As for giving each side half, that is about what the 1948 proposal was. The Arabs rejected it.

    So it shouldn't occur just because Israel needs it
    Nah, go back to the 1948 proposal. The Arabs were foolish in ever rejecting it

    Nope. Arabs gambled and lost. 1967 borders. Anything less would not provide sufficient security or access to the sea for ISrael. Arabs should have accepted in 1948. You are right, they were foolish in rejecting. That is now gone. The best they will EVER get is the 1967 borders.

    Never is a long time. Don't be too sure where the conflict and the Arab countries will be in decades to come.
    I can just imagine, me with grandchildren and still watching the conflict on BBC. What a depressing thought

    It IS a depressing thought, but unless the Arabs can accept that Israel has the right to live in peace within the 1949-1967 borders, it will become a sad reality.

    You see, i don't see the problem with that.
    But there is decades old hurt on both sides which is preventing it

    Didn't you initially support the 1948 borders?

    I think Israel will accept MOST of the pre-67 borders (East Jerusalem would be the main sticking point) but the Palestinians said NO.
