Do the Mexicans in these border areas even want to join Mexico, though? If so, and if they actually manage to secede from Texas, then I myself would support allowing them to hold a referendum about whether or not to secede from the U.S. and to join Mexico.Let's say they were contiguous, you wouldn't blame us for not accepting their occupation or annexation by a foreign state. And we wouldn't blame you for not accepting Mexico's annexation of Hispanic neighborhoods on your side of the border. Therefore, we shouldn't blame the Palestinians either.
Didn't the 1947 U.N. Partition Plan (which the Zionists accepted) state that Jerusalem and its holy sites would become an international zone, though?That would be a solution, but Israel will never accept UN involvement.
Yes; correct!This would require Israel to 1. end the occupation,
Please keep in mind, though, that the Palestinians have already agreed to the possibility of mutually agreed Israeli-Palestinian land swaps.2. end the illegal settlements, and 3. respect the borders under international law. None of this is in Israel's interest and all of this is in Palestine's interest, so it's not going to happen.
I can't think of any solution acceptable to both parties.
