    Given that three Israeli prime ministers have offered to withdraw from the vast majority of the West Bank and that Israel has already left Gaza, this article proves mostly to be fantasy. Achieving "viable" Palestinian state doesn't require Israel absorb millions of Arabs almost all of whom were born in Lebanon, Jordan, etc nor does it require Jerusalem. Israel thrived for its first 20 years without access to Jerusalem and absorbing almost a million Arab Jews deprived of their property and expelled form the Arab nations. The problem here is very simple -- finding a Palestinian leader who can take "Yes" for an answer.
