If the Palestinians really wanted a state of their own, they would have had it long ago. There were many ocasions of negotiated peace in a two state solution. However, they dont' want a two state solution, they want one state from the Mediterranean to Jordan. Moreover, they prefer to be victims financed by the whole world. Billions of dollars pour into the PLO leaders pockets, not into infrastructure, hospitals, education.... When the Palestinians are ready to take on the responsabilities of running their own state, there will be peace. Meanwhile, it's all just propaganda. Let them declare unilaterally a Palestinian state and see what they can do with it. Israel would finally be rid of this huge responsability. They just wont' do it.
