    Why do you say that? You make it sound like Israel is dictating the terms. You seem to think Israel is in a position to say what can and cannot be in Palestine and that the Pals must gratefully bow and touch their forelocks. Israeli hubris never fails to amaze. It is stolen land, Israel does not have any legal right to be on it or to be bartering over the illegal settlements it built there. One doesn't normally get into a dutch auction with the thief, where he demands the right to keep half of what he stole. Olmert's map is just an Israeli try-on. It leaves out E J'sem. No one - Arab, EU, USA, UN - is going to buy that. It has long Israeli tentacles of land cutting up Palestine to get Ariel, Ma'aleh Adumim, Kedumim etc, these are never going to be accepted either. And why would the Pals want 150 sq km of arid Wilderness? Israel was being too greedy and tricky by half.
