    The Palestinians have never accepted any proposals from Israel or the US. The two state solution with land give backs has been offered to the Palestinians several times and it is always rejected.

    Now Trump whacks them up beside the head. Maybe they'll realize that they need to make a deal before they lose it all.
    There will never be any peace, since there's no one to talk to on the Palestinian side!

    Sounds great. At present Jewish residents in the West Bank can vote for the Isreali government, which can arrest people without trial (including the West Bank), destroy farmland, decide who uses which roads, decide who leaves their hometown, decide who can leave the West Bank and can impose curfews. Futhermore Israeli inhabitants of the West Bank who commit acts of violence against their Arab Neighbours will be dealt with with via the Isreali justice system, overseen by a government that they can vote for and their Arab Neighbours can not.

    If you want to argue that the occupied territories are De Jure Isreali territory then I wouldn`t entirely disagree because De Facto they are allready treated as such in every meaningful sence. But if this is the case we need to accept that Israel`s regime is one that extends full civil rights to some of those it rules over on the basis of race and religion and imposes a state of subjugation on others based on the same criteria, and no regime of this type should be allowed to exist in the 21st century.
