    D: "including east jeruslem the settlers comprise 10% of israel. so not feasible to move them." Define "feasible", Duncan. It adds up to...500,000 Israelis? Can Israel move 500,000 Israelis? Of course; Israel absorbed that many Russian Jews in the 1990s without fatal indigestion. You are saying that Israel doesn't WANT to re-absorb that many Israelis. So sorry, but that elicits no sympathy from me, and nor should it from the Pals. D: "It is too late for that now." It is never too late to stand up for your rights. D: "The fantical 3 no`s of the arabs has boomeranged in their faces." The Khartoum Declaration? I am happy to argue that they were neither "fanatical" nor "blanket no's", but that is another discussion. D: "Us attempts at mediation fail because of arab inabilty to accept a jewish state in the middle east" Arafat accepted a Jewish state in 1993, so why couldn't Clinton mediate an agreement at Camp David 2000?
