Hi Jeff, A lot of what you've said in your posts to Ernie makes sense. But I don't think its reasonable for the Palestinians to bear the brunt of the disagreements Israel has with Egypt or Lybia or Algeria, or etc. That issue, compensation should be part of regularization of relations with those countries. As to the Jordan Valley "I don`t know what Israel intends to do about the Jordan Valley. Personally, I`m in favor of the security barrier as the border (at least temporarily) which will not include the Jordan Valley or the northwestern shore of the Dead Sea." I think there should be an agreement to exchange land, dunam for dunam, as part of any final agreement.
