"40 years following the declaration of the State of Israel the Palestinians demanded all of the land of Palestine." Nope, for 59. Hamas, the majority member of the govt, still openly calls for Israel's destruction. Fatah, the 2nd largest party, still has founding documents calling for Israel's destruction. Both still speak of the GL as the first step. The PLO still has a map of "Palestine" that includes Israel. Hamas also rejected Oslo. of course, JB's still not able to admit that the PA has int'l responsibilities so the PLO is no longer the "sole representative", that the leading party is both not a member of the PLO and that the self-same party still hasn't said it will honor all previous agreements, and that the Mecca Accord creating the "unity govt" didn't demand they accept Israel's existence. In addition, Oslo did not specify the GL as the border and left definition of final borders to final status agreements. JB is still incapable of truth.
