Video: Jewish American kid v. 'Palestinian' American kid

CNN set up a debate between two 20-something American kids: A Jewish woman with family in Israel and a 'Palestinian' woman with family in Gaza. They were only able to agree on one thing: That they don't see a solution in their lifetimes.

Let's go to the videotape.

Rick Sanchez is surprised that they both felt that way. I'm not.

Shalom Shabbot, Carl,

Umm... my Middle East history is a little rusty, but can you cite a reference -- a map perhaps -- to the Palestinian state which existed (pre-1948) where Muslims, Jews, and Christians lived in harmony?? (as reference by the Palestinian girl)

I think the Palestinian girl is full of crap and the Jewish girl was ill-prepared to debate her claims of victimization!

There isn't always a solution in life. Its just best to let things be. Children are sometimes wiser than our best adult diplomat. They get what the State Department and every foreign ministry in the world doesn't. The Middle East has defied every sort of attempt to impose or bring about settlement in the past century and it will continue to be no different in this one.

It is not now, nor has it ever been about land. Contrary to the 'palis' claims, there has never, in the history of this planet, a country named palestine.

The jewish girl was empathetic to the palis. The 'palis' girl was not empathetic, but militant.

The only way to end this conflict is to let it find its end on its own. One side has to be so completely crushed, so demoralized, that it ceases to go on fighting, and finally gives in.

This is the *only* viable solution. Anything else is inhumane.

She didn't do a good job because she (as I would be) was emotional in response to the lies propagated by the Hamas supporter.

She should have stated that Hamas, an arm of the Muslim Brotherhood, is openly genocidal towards Jews world wide and Israel in particular. She should have asked what was this country called Palestine in 1948 where everyone lived together in peace... etc.
