If suddenly Israel accepts to become Palestine, letting all Palestinians refugees come back to their lands and homes, overnight the conflict is finished. Only one country with equal rights for all, which would include actual Palestinian territories and Gaza. We must never forget that Arabic and Muslim countries never inflicted any Shoah on Jews and even protected them. It was Germany an European nations. I still don’t understand why, in Nuremberg, they didn’t force Germany to give one of its provinces to Jewish survivors to create Israel instead of stealing the land of Palestinians who never did anything bad to Jews.
President Reuven Rivlin said Monday morning that Israeli Arabs were not “second-class voters” and that “there are no first-class citizens” in the country.
Rivlin made the remarks in a rebuttal to a comment by Prime Minister Benjamin who said that “Israel is the nation-state of the Jewish people and them alone.”

The premier wrote this comment on an Instagram post in which he responded to a statement by Israeli television host Rotem Sela, who slammed Culture Minister Miri Regev for saying in a televised interview that Arab presence in a governing coalition was dangerous.
Rivlin, who spoke at a ceremony marking the 40th anniversary of the signing of the peace accord between Israel and Egypt, said that “those who believe in the duty of the State of Israel to be a Jewish and democratic state in the full sense of the word must remember that in the State of Israel there are full equal rights to all of the country’s citizens.”
