News and views from an Israeli girl
Welcome to the official blog of IsraelitKan. My name is Gaia and I'm based in South Israel, with some years of experience in writing. On my blog you can view my stories, from an inside point of view - most of which are from Israeli newspapers, blogs and personal experiences- and I hope to share with you the behind-the-scenes goings-on, context and background in which they happened from an Israeli Insider girl...... ___________________________

PLO: No 'Deals' With Israel, Unless We Get Everything
We Want At recent celebrations commemorating the 26th anniversary of the start of the second Intidfada, the PLO issued a statement in which it said that it would not compromise on any of its basic requirements to make a deal with Israel: A full Israeli withdrawal from all lands liberated in 1967, establishment of Jerusalem as the capital of a Palestinian state, and a full return to their original homes the families that fled Israel when it was established in 1948.
Such a “refugee return” would inundate what is left of Israel with millions of Arabs who would essentially destroy the Jewish character of the state, turning it into a “secular, democratic” state that, like other such states in the Middle East (like Lebanon) would likely be eventually wracked by civil war and strife.
