    MdM: "The Palestinians do not respect the territorial integrity of Israel, and they never have." Since 1993 the Palestinians have offered to "respect the territorial integrity of Isreael" within the Green Line, if Israel would only agree to do the same. Israel refuses to reciprocate, because it wants to expand its territory. MdM: "Can you provide a single good reason why Israel should respect that of the Palestinians?" Because the Palestinians are a stateless people, while Israel is a sovereign state. "Sovereign states" are held to a higher standard than "stateless people" i.e. the former is beholden to int'l laws and int'l treaties in ways that the latter are not. Sorry, but that's the way it is, Murray. And if YOU think that is unfair then the solution is obvious: let the Palestinians have their own state, and then you can hold THAT STATE to the same standards as the state of Israel. But until then your question is pure ignorance.
