Is religion responsible for the opposition to peace in the Israel-Palestine conflict?

And rightly so. The right of return would destroy Israel.

A two state solution requires allowing *both* a Jewish and a Palestinian state.

Israel's continued arrogation of West Bank land negates their pretext of a two state solution regardless.

Land for peace means that Israel only gives up land when they get peace in return.

Palestinian refusal to peacefully accept a two-state solution means that Israel is not required to give up any land.

There are plenty of Zionists who are content with a two-state solution based on 1967 borders.

Justice for the Palestinians would involve the Zionists complying with international law and implementing the Palestinians' Right of Return.

International law does not require a right of return. International law requires a two-state solution. The Palestinians are the ones who are refusing to accept a two-state solution.

Do Palestinians have a right to return to the places from which they or their ancestors were displaced?

Palestinian refugees’ right to return to the homes from which they were displaced is well established in international law. The first source of support for Palestinian refugees’ claims to a right of return is U.N. General Assembly Resolution 194 (III) Of December 1948, paragraph 11, in which the U.N. General Assembly,


“Resolves that the refugees wishing to return to their homes and live at peace with their neighbors should be permitted to do so at the earliest practicable date, and that compensation should be paid for the property of those choosing not to return and for loss of or damage to property which, under principles of international law or in equity, should be made good by the governments or authorities responsible;

Instructs the Conciliation Commission to facilitate the repatriation, resettlement and economic and social rehabilitation of the refugees and the payment of compensation…”

Since 1949, this resolution together with UNSC Res. 242 and 338 have been regularly reaffirmed by the U.N. General Assembly.

The rights outlined in this resolution are firmly grounded in international humanitarian, human rights, and refugee law. According to the United Nations High Commission for Refugees (UNHCR) Executive Conclusion No. 40, “…the basic rights of persons to return voluntarily to their country of origin is reaffirmed and it is urged that international cooperation be aimed at achieving this solution.”[xi] UNHCR’s support for the right of return is based on the idea that the right of return is a recognized customary norm of international law which is included in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights, the International Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Racial Discrimination, and the Fourth Geneva Convention.[xii]

Israel's existence is based on its oppression of the Palestinian peoples. Israel must be destroyed.

Like I said, it merely negates the Zionists' pretext of a two state solution.

Sure, and too this is irrelevant to the Zionist claim that they own Palestine because of archaeology.

You are mistaken. International law does require a right of return. See Revelette2's above post.

Posting facts to Orlyboy is a massive waste of time. Only his opinion is important to him/her.

Well, I do it more for the readers following the threads than for oralloy himself. He tends to close discussions when he starts to repeat himself with replies that amount to "nuh-uh" and "uh-huh."

The General Assembly has no legal authority.

They are also an anti-Semitic organization and are rightfully ignored by the rest of the world.

The UNHCR isn't exactly an ideal source, but I'll assume for now that they are accurately quoting customary norms. The text of their quote raises no red flags with me.

If a Palestinian state is ever created, that will become the Palestinians' country of origin. Any right of return that Palestinians possess will be a right to return to that Palestinian state. This will not give the Palestinians any right to enter the state of Israel.

Refusal to make peace with Israel means that Israel gets to keep all the land and keep building settlements.

Land for peace only means that Israel gives up land when they get peace in return.

Your denials of Israel's willingness to accept a two-state solution legitimizes all the settlements. Thanks for the help.

"Zionist references to history and archaeology to establish that they are indigenous to the region" and "Zionist willingness to accept a two-state solution" are indeed two independent things.

A right to return to a Palestinian state does not give the Palestinians any right to enter the Israeli state.

The General Assembly is an anti-Semitic institution with no power in international law.

Please don't quote stupid people. When too much stupidity is concentrated into one space it collapses into a singularity that sucks IQ points out of people who read the thread.

He heard someone else use it in the playground a long time ago. In the intervening years he hasn't been able to think of a better put down.

Typical that you'd think in terms of put downs. My post was not about putting the stupid person in his place. I expect that would be futile. It was a request that I not be subjected to the stupid person's gibberish.

No. Greed for territory and power is the ulterior reason. But then that's why the Israel-Palestine conflict is defunct, because to actually address the root cause is to just address why all nations and status exists.
