    Analysts go to University at 18 and spend careers writing about it. So do political scientists. The worlds most prominent politicians (Blaire, Clinton, Kerry) make it their pet project. Negotiations come and go. Political theories rise and fall. Cold wars start and end. The Arab Israeli war goes on. Every so often, someone thinks they "get it." Henry Siegman thinks he gets it now. The problem is Netanyahu & the Palestinian demand for 67 borders. One insolvable issue. Others have different 'I get it' theories: Some think its about politicially divided Palestinians unable to believably guarantee an end to the conflict. For others its about internal political convenience of the war paradigm in Palestinian politics, Arab Politics or Israeli Politics. Etc. This war is like quantum physics. The only reason some issues seem solvable is because some others are insolvable. BTW, settlements were not always an unmovable object. Between 1980-95, they could have been dismantled. Pre-67 they didn't exist as an issue. This war will outlive us all.
