    On par with Israel's? You know with the aid of America and much of the west, Israel has gotten to where it is only after 60 years. Second of all, the Palestinians want a state now, not tomorrow, not next year or next century, this process could take years and years, and it would only achieve a "climate" for negotiations, not a final state or even successful negotiations. Third of all, as an Israeli minister you should be thinking about your nation first, not second. Do you think it is wise to create a state that can compete with your own that literally has the largest border with you? A state with which you will probably have some border disputes and may cause damage to further its own interests at the expense of yours? I'm sorry but that sounds absolutely foolish. By all means create a stable economy with potential for greatness they without a doubt deserve that, but dont give away all your tricks. You have to ensure the continued existence of Israel, and although peace will do that, such a peace could in the long run, be your end. In final note, you give too much Mr. Lieberman, I know you must give, but not that much, let the Palestinians build something of their own they can be proud of.
