A small win for Palestine.

I know Palestine is fucked and all that but you have to recognise and celebrate the little victories when they arrive.
Although, strangely I didnt get this buzzed through my phone via Al Jazeera.

However:

Is this actually happening, this annexation of the West Bank? Could it lead to war?

There are only two solutions to having a bad neighbour: they leave or you leave. If they aren't leaving then as much as you want to hang on because why the fuck should you have to move from your own home, it's ultimately the only thing to do for your own sanity and survival.

The Palestinians are never ever getting a homeland, or peace, and they never, ever were. Nothing more a few square miles of concentration camp anyway, until they are gradually squeezed out completely into neighbouring countries.

I've thought for years they should just call it a day. The US has never been on their side and neither has the EU, to any degree that means anything. Most people who lived on the land before the ethnic cleansing in the 1940s are gone. Most of the population today can probably only remember life as refugees or under military oppression. What's there to hang around for or be homesick about?

They should agree to give up unenforceable symbolic claims to "Palestine" and to relocate to a country of the individual's choice (other than Israel) in return for $1,000,000 for every Palestinian man, woman and child.

Israel should have no problem agreeing to the US and EU shelling that out on their behalf, and with fewer than 10 million Palestinians in the world, it comes to no more than 10 trillion dollars; absolute peanuts for resolving one of the world's most intractable issues.

I'm not sure that adequately recognises the failed world-building of old powers and the shamelessness of successive Israeli governments or that to be Palestinian is to be martyred to this cause - due to the extent of their diminution. To equate being Palestinian with being a home owner with a neighbour is preposterous and shows a huge deficit in appreciation of psychology at play.

Someone without arms to defend themselves can only express injustice through suffering. Despite wall-to-wall pro-Israeli media in the west (who ultimately call the shots for now) there is still global support for Palestinians, which unfortunately nearly always goes unrepresented through parliamentary democracy which is designed to filter out unwanted interests. If they were given voice you would have a groundswell that made UKIP look like a bake sale.

Send the Palestinians for a long walk and the next Middle-Eastern neighbours will eventually feel Israel's wrath.  It is not simply a haven for the Jewish community, it is a white ethnostate.  The Ethiopian Jews in Israel are almost treated as shit as the Palestinians.  They even had their own riots after the police shot one of them dead this time last year.

you forgot to mention that Palestinian immigrants have been treated like scum in neighbouring countries like Lebanon and Jordania, and I'm not sure Israel has been forcing them to act like that. they've been abandonned by everybody.

Idea for a two state solution:

1. Palestine gets all their original land back
2. Israel still exists but it gets relocated to somewhere nobody is really going to miss i.e. Lincolnshire

Would be good if the US stumped up and gave Jews some of their own land, considering they have the biggest lobbies and influence.

But of course its not about that is it oh well.

Australia? Fucking loads of land there, and hardly anyone on it. There must be a good long stretch of nice coastline that's uninhabited and not important to the Aborigines, surely?

It's uninhabited for a reason: it's uninhabitable. There's a reason the Australian doctrine for WW2 was "If the Japanese invade, say 'fuck it' and run back to Brisbane. Let them find out the hard way how fucked up everything in that big expanse is."
