...to handing the Palestinians a state on a silver platter. Readers just do not get it. An imposed settlement gives Israel the golden option of refusing to implement it. Agreeing to a peace settlement and giving away land is for big friers, suckers, only. Why give away anything? So therefore as much as Israel would hate an imposed settlement it prefers it to an agreed one. This is Israel's game of chicken now: either hold off on the peace talks or deal with us refusing to accept a settlement. Obama still won't win!
