    U: "No separate Arab political entity, west of the Jordan can be viable, not now or ever. " It has never, ever been attempted, Uzi. The letters "PA" stands for "Palestinian Authority", and is not - and never has been, not now or ever - any sort of viable, independent Arab political entity. It came out of an INTERIM ACCORD at Oslo, Uzi, and was only ever meant to be a PROVISIONAL AUTHORITY that builds up the infrastructure that will then be used to create the FUTURE viable, independent Palestinian government. Of course, Sharon made sure that all that infrustructure was pounded into the Ramallah dust, precisely so he could claim what you have just claimed. The Israelis set the PA up to take a great big fall, Uzi; it either became a tool of Israeli collaboration (keeping the Pals under the thumb) or it resisted (in which case it "couldn't control its population" and had to be neutered and shunned).
