You provide an excellent example of "fatuous" in your foolish arguments.
Your silly amateur philosophy requires real people to commit suicide in order to satisfy some obscure "principle" based on a tissue of lies. The Arabs in the so-called West Bank and Gaza have considerably less of a claim to the land than the Jews. The vast majority of them are descended from Egyptian and Syrian settlers that came to area as labor when Zionists created economic opportunities.
Read Mark Twain's Innocents Abroad for a description of the Holy Land in 1870. This would have been shortly before the formation of the Zionist movement and the place was basically a wasteland with a few tiny oases of population. In those few population centers there was a continuous Jewish presence so the concept you seem to depend upon is totally illegitimate. I suspect you must be European as they have been totally propagandized on the Arab Native, Jewish "settler" meme which blindly and stupidly equates Israeli Jews with European colonialism.
The entire concept of a "Palestinian" West Bank is itself based on ethnic cleansing. There were significant Jewish populations that were driven out by violence - most notably the series of massacres in Hebron starting in 1929.
Arabs make ****ty neighbors, as do muslims generally. Ask the Europeans who are increasingly victimized in their own cities by Arab and muslim gangs. Ask the Kurds who have been under the Arabs' thumb for centuries. Ask the Christian minorities of the Middle East who have been fleeing or converting under persecution for centuries. Ask the Armenians and Greeks who were subjected to genocide by the Turks and Arabs. Ask the Indians who are constantly on guard against Pakistan-based terrorist groups. Ask the Thais who are engaged in a low-level civil war in the south. Ask the African Christians and animists who are regularly subjected to slaving expediions.
