kidnapped Israeli teens bodies found in The Rest of the World Posted July 12, 2014 · Report reply Are you saying Israel should have accepted states as neighbors that would inevitably be armed to the teeth? Do any of those plans involve recognizing Israel as a Jewish state and providing guarantees of peace? Not just a houdna? Yes. All of the plans would recognize Israel as a state (not "Jewish State") as it is not required by international law. There would also be peace and normalization of relations. It's in the Peace Initiative. Check out what the leaders of all Western countries have said about the peace plan. It's only Israel that does not accept the plan or even try to negotiate based on the plan. This is another indication that Israel is not interested in resolving this issue and would rather see the cycle continue. This will allow them to continue their illegal expansion and annexation of Palestinian land.
