    High on rhetoric, and zero on content. Brant, you stated in #19 that the Arabs who lived in Palestine are the ones "who refuse to give an inch". I pointed out that at Olso they made a HUGE concession i.e. they abandoned their claim to ALL of Palestine; a claim they had stuck to since Balfour first made his Declaration. Gave it up, Brant. And not just gave up demanding ALL of Palestine, but even gave up any claim to the land inside Israel that had been set aside for them by the UN - a issue over which they had an arguable legal claim. Gave it up, Brant, on a vague promise from Israel that she would then discuss in good faith handing over the 22% that remained. And what happened? Israel said "thank you very much" and *then* said "but we want to keep the settlements as well, if that's all the same to you". Well, it ain't alright, Brant, and all your emotional claptrap can't hide that it is ISRAEL that is now demanding it be given title to land that isn't hers.
