    Now we have the latest comment thrown into the mix by the Knesset speaker who says: oh, Israel is willing to make concessions but there are "red lines". Indeed. Readers care to take a guess wha those "red lines" might be? I will take a stab. No discussion on EJ where we will continue to build and establish facts on the ground that will make it logistically impossible for Palestinians to have a capital in a city that is entirely judaised. The sttlement blocs must be permitted to grow to account for natural growth and they must all have a security parametre around them in which there can be no Palestinian building. Security demands that a seperate system of road connecting the blocs be maintained by Israel and that there be restricted Palestinian travel permitted. This is already a concession since originally no Palestinian vehicles were to have been permitted on roads connecting Israelis settlements. There will be other demands but this is the start of them.
