    "the region`s arabs will be freer than they`ve ever been before".

    That`s right. Sure just look at the Palestinians. They`re having an absolute ball. Thanks Israel.

    bankvole, arabs within the borders of israel have all the freedoms as anybody else within its borders. arabs who attack israel from the outside do not have the same privileges.

    Obama wants to return to the 1967 borders? That`s BRILLIANT! Why did nobody else think to propose that before? :O

    This guy seems to have very good, balanced and objective ideas. I`m sure he`s not biased at all.

    I`m so tired of the crap in the middle east. My solution is to build a wall around the whole place, toss a bunch of guns and grenades over, and wait until it gets quiet. Simplistic yet effective.

    The point at around 2:40 "Israel is more democratic and more advanced" yet they were Number 15 on the list shown.

    Yet if you are going to go with that point why not just give everything over to Norway which was No. 1 on the list?

    When Arabs are planning to wipe out the Israel from the face of earth ,then monitoring them is also needed.And yes Muslims living inside are provided all the rights.

    First of all that`s not what Obama said. His exact words were: "The borders of Israel and Palestine should be based on the 1967 lines with mutually agreed swaps, so that secure and recognized borders are established for both states."
    I used to believe that Isrealis were victims, living in an insane world of constant attacks but the more I`ve looked into it the more I see Isrealis as provacateurs, building illegal settlements simply to antagonize Palestinians, confining people behind giant walls cutting them off from everything, even an ocean they can see from their yards.
    Isreal needs to work on human rights. Their history should not be used as an excuse for them to treat others inhumanely.

    This idiot might have a point but I won`t listen to anyone who starts a lecture off with a lie.

    I`ll admit it... I had no idea this was form that nut 5cats.

    Davy if you guessed correctly this time I applaud you.

    Klavan brings up some good points but his overall plan is clearly a bad idea.

    For one thing there are way too many muslims.
    For another there is a massive disparity in development in the ME.
    Also the religion is too heavily engrained. The only way to undo it is through careful provocation, prodding and lack of respect. Which takes time. The only quick way is via uncontrolled fission.
    Education might work too.

    It`s true that the Palestinian Arabs who accepted Israeli sovereignty are still allowed to vote, but watch what happens in about forty years when even keeping the original inhabitants out of their homes no longer prevents a non-Jewish majority within the borders of Israel.

    I have no doubt that Israel will engage in genocide before that happens -- but if I`m wrong, ethnicity-based voting rights will be required to preserve the "Jewish state."

    We have already tried that with several countries. The Iran-Iraq war is an example.

    How is what he is saying any different from what the Muslim extremists are saying? Anyone? Anyone? Oh yea, because when you criticize jews you`re considered to be a racist (hint of the day, they`re not a race but a religion).

    It`s sad people still kill each other over who`s imaginary friend is better and insist each has a better claim on the smallest piece of dirt in the world.

    zieveraar, as stated by Ishmael Khaldi, a muslim who lives in israel;
    "I am a proud Israeli - along with many other non-Jewish Israelis such as Druze, Bahai, Bedouin, Christians and Muslims, who live in one of the most culturally diversified societies and the only true democracy in the Middle East. Like America, Israeli society is far from perfect, but let us deal honestly. By any yardstick you choose -- educational opportunity, economic development, women and gay`s rights, freedom of speech and assembly, legislative representation -- Israel`s minorities fare far better than any other country in the Middle East."

    So I`d say muslims fare a lot better in israel than anybody other than muslims fare in the rest of the middle east.

    "yea, thats why they have gun shots at mosques such as the dome of the rock and aqsa. I saw them in person."

    Did you ever stop to think that those are from the Six-Day War and all the other conflicts that have happened. The Arabs were fighting TOWARDS the Temple Mount hence all the bullet holes in the Old City walls.

    Militant Arabs don`t give a flying flip about anyone but themselves and their goals.

    DISCLAIMER: Notice I said *militant*. Yes there are good Arabs and Islam is generally a peaceful religion.

    People sometimes talk about whether it would be a good or bad thing to go back in time and kill Hitler if such a thing was possible(*).

    Personally, I think it would be more appropriate to talk about going back in time and killing Abraham, given the millenia of suffering and death that has resulted from him founding the Abrahamic religions. Or, maybe, persuading him not to do it by showing him the results.


    * Bad thing in my opinion, because his place might have been filled by a less unbalanced nazi who wouldn`t have made the same mistakes and who might have won the war.

    The Middle Eastern conflict is such a clusterfudgek, and sadly portrayed very biased in this video. I would warn anyone to form his opinion on it, or the following flamerwar in the forum that will inevitably follow.

    @madest: Obama`s "new" proposal was on the table in previous negotiations (I forget which ones, there`ve been so many!) and the PLO turned it down cold.
    To say, as Obama has: give one side everything they want, then negotiate! Is drattingly bad forign policy.

    @akabane: bullet holes in the Dome of the Rock? MUST be Jews! No Arab or Muslim has EVER fired a gun, dropped a bomb or launched a rocket at Israel before!

    @Lazyme Thank you! I think... Klavan balances the history with the funny quite well IMO. Yes there is a population imbalance that would squash democracy if this plan were tried, but it`s interesting, yes?

    What exactly is so pompous and conceited about wanting to exist? Militant arabs that want to kill people simply because other people don`t share their religious views sounds a LOT more conceited and pompous to me. Think before ya post retarded comments, dumbass.
