"homeland" is what the original documentation said; this nonsense about a purely Jewish state is comelately. Don't underestimate ole Dubya. He knows when his cajones are in a ringer with the King of Saud and he has NO intention of having him put the thumb screws to them. A homeland is what is needed; an exclusive state is not needed nor will be supported by the international community. Ever notice how Dubya has refused to move the US embassy to Jerusalem, despite pressure from Congress and AIPAC? He is not quite as stupid as he looks. Stay tuned for that new Pal state, yessiree, toot toot, all aboard the peace train---last run before being mothballed. Regards.
