Nathan, Romney spelled out his thoughts on the Israeli-Palestinian issue quite plainly during his infamous "47%" fundraiser talk to what was likely a crowd of wealthy Republican Jews in Boca Raton back in May (bear in mind that the vast majority of Jews don't lean that way and that even Obama is still polling at about 70% among Jews). But as much as I don't care for Romney, his thoughts on the matter were spot-on. The conflict is not resolvable because the Palestinian leadership, which panders to the extremists the same way that Republican candidates are coerced into signing Norquist's anti-tax pledge, don't want peace. The only acceptable solution to them is the eventual destruction of the Jewish state.
What needs to happen sooner rather than later to get Palestinians on the Peace Track is to once and for all disabuse them of this notion that the destruction of Israel is still a possibility. The first step to take is to once and for all move our embassy from Tel Aviv to Israel's capital of Jerusalem, which has been Israel's capital, always in biblical times, and in roman times, and again in modern times, since 1948, 19 years before there was any mis-named "Occupied Territories" in 1967. Israel is the only country in the world that does not get to decide which city will be its own capital? If that isn't out and out Jew-hatred and cow-towing to a muslim agenda, then what is?
Can anyone here imagine if Saudi Arabia told the US that it's capital is Philadelphia, would we then send our President or Secretary of State to Philly to meet with a Saudi ruler?
So that is step one. Try it and then call me a few months later after the killings and worldwide embassy burnings subside.
But here's another great example of Jew-hatred or Israel-bashing or whatever you want to call it: 0 people a day are dying in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict these days. 100-200 people are dying every day in Syria's muslim on muslim conflict and have been for several months now.
