5. you seem to be saying that

you want a one state solution, only Palestine.

Remember, there has never been a country called Palestine to take lands from. It was an artificial construct carved out of the Ottoman Empire. Yes there are Palestinian people, just like there are Kurds. But that does not mean all the land they live in automatically is a Kurdistan (or whatever they would want to call it).

If you go by where people live to give them a nation, then a Palestine would include Jordan, as well as the WB and Gaza, since people of Palestinian descent are the majority there as well.

But that is not how things work.

Palestine should consist of Gaza, most of the WB (with minor adjustments along the green line, but would give them 99% of the WB in a continuous state) with the exception of the old city of Jerusalem.
