I agree with you about the "five finger" being totally ludicrous. But look at some of the other nonsense going on nearer the Green Line: 1) Qalqilyah is sandwiched between Tzofim and Alfei Menashe; Abbas would have no choice but to tell the Israelis that they can't have both. 2) The twin roads leading back from Ariel through Elkana and Beit Aryeh entrap a triangle of Palestinian territory; Abbas can't possibly accept that. 3) What on earth is that road heading south of Beit Aryeh doing/going? 4) The Latrun salient is all Israeli; is that counted in the "5%" that Israel is annexing from the Pals, or is it excluded from the calculations? 5) There is a little cut-off triangle of land betweem Givat Ze'ev and Nataf; were we supposed to miss that fact? Man, what a shocker!
