    What Barak offered was a fraud. Even at his most 'generous' he only offered Palestinian control of 80% of the Westbank, excluding East Jerusalem. And what a Palestinian state it is. The large blocs of Israeli colonies not only cut the Palestinian state in three, contiguity is made even worse by the network of Jews-only roads. And Israel maintains control of the Jordan valley! And we are not even talking about East Jerusalem, where Barak 'generously' offered the Palestinians a capital in Abu Dis (!!), a village on the outskirts of East Jerusalem. By the time Barak came up with the Taba map, which he did not dare show to the Israeli public, and which the Palestinians accepted as a base for negotionations, he was already finished politically. It was the same with Olmert. By the time he acknowledged what minimum justice for Palestinians entailed he was finished. It is so ridiculous to keep on coming with these 'generous' offers that never were!
