Do you listen to the Palestinians leaders and
spokespersons? They recognise Israel's right to exist.
They do not have a choice. It's a fact and it'll stay
that way. Today no one can dispute Israel's right to
exist. Does that mean Israel will vacate the occupied
land and move back to the pre-1967 border? NO. A big

Mutual agreement between who? In case of Kashmir, the
Maharajah, a person who could legally make the
decision to accede to India on behalf of his people,
gave it to India. End of story. The West Bank and Gaza
strip were not given to Israel by any agreement.

I should have mentioned that this 'more than 70%
Palestinians' became refugees in and around 1948. Long
before the war of 1967. Should these people be taken
back to Israel?

You mentioned this before. Nobel peace prize, we all
know, is farcical. It's politically motivated and
manipulated. The 6th prime minister of Israel,
Menachem Begin, received the Nobel peace prize in
1978. His background was not exactly clean nor was his
hand without blood. There you go.
