    territories need to stop, Israel is a pluralistic society.  Is there bigotry?  Unfortunately, yes, as in any country, and that needs to be worked on.

    What you refer to as 'ethnic cleansing' (I don't, even though I oppose it) is not something that has to occur in order to have a Jewish homeland.  But yes, Israel does have to quit the territories.

      Israel is explicitly not a pluralistic society, it is a religious state. Religious freedom isn't enough to be pluralistic.

      My point is that it has already occurred. The massive amounts of Palestinian refugees didn't come from the occupied territories. They came from the core Israeli territories. Also, the removal of Palestinians never really stopped after the civil war, but continues till this day, through various softer means.
