Israel 'has to withdraw further'

Israel will have to withdraw from further parts of the West Bank, acting Prime Minister Ehud Olmert has said.

In his first policy speech as interim leader, he said the main challenge ahead was to shape Israel's borders for good to ensure a Jewish majority. It could not continue to control parts with a Palestinian majority, but would keep its main settlements, he said.

Mr Olmert told a conference at Herzliya that Israel's withdrawal from the Gaza Strip and part of the West Bank last year was a turning point.

In order to ensure the existence of a Jewish national home, we will not be able to continue ruling over the territories in which the majority of the Palestinian population lives," he said.

However, Mr Olmert said that Israel would keep security zones, the main settlement blocs, and places important to the Jewish people, such as Jerusalem.

yuck, blog spam sucks.

Israel is wise to move out of the West Bank. however, the problem is not getting resolved. fear and hate is steering this conflict to deadly end game.

Glad to see you are spilling your ignorance over onto this thread as well. We could take your word for it, or we could actually poll the opinions of the Arab world. No need, in fact. It has already been done, and their reasons are quite straight forward and have nothing to do with jealousy.

Furthermore, your post is seething with racism. Perhaps you might point to the boiling to death of prisoners in one particular nation, but unfortunately, that is done with Western support.
