    "Obama is giving them everything they want on a silver plate with no concessions or recognition from them. Why should the Pals want peace???" Because they might be tired of getting bombed? Tired of losing? The USA can fight for years and years without really wanting peace. It costs a trillion here and there but we don't notice. The soldiers get tired of military discipline in third-world deserts and such, but they keep their morale up. But we'd get real tired of losing. If it was the USA getting bombed every day or every week we'd want it to stop. But the only way for Palestine to have peace is to be strong enough to deter attack. That would mean spending more per capita than Israel does. They can't do it. What good does it do them to declare independence and then just get invaded again? So Palestine should apply to become a US territory. Get the USA to protect them and guarantee their internationally-recognized borders. Of course their laws would have to be compatible with US law.
