    Barak never offered all of the WB nor fully ontiguous Pal areas. Not even Barak has made this claim. The tall tales Israelis tell about this supposedly magnanimous offer get bigger with every telling. In essence, Israel offered to return much but not all of the land it has taken and refused to address the refugee issue at all. If you have evidence to the contrary, please cite a credible source. A thief offering to return much but not all of what he has stolen is hardly generous or magnanimous. Nor is one refusing to accept only part of what is stolen from him unreasonable. The entire world outside Israel recognizes that Israel has no rights whatsoever to any of the WB. Why should the Palestinians acept less? Time is on their side. Realistically, any solution will include land swaps to let Israel keep some contiguous settlements and make its borders more defensible, but the Pals should have at least the same acreage/dunams taken by Israel in 1967.
