    Gaza was Egyptian controlled territory- Arnold My understanding is that Gaza was never part of Egypt proper. Israel controls the ins and outs except the smuggling. When the Palestinians accept Israel and stop shooting, then and only then can the two groups talk about Gaza taking control of their own ins and outs.-Arnold I do not think that that it can happen that way. Israel will never give anything it is not compelled to. The PLA ceased armed struggle years ago. They have achieved nothing by doing so. Hamas took note of this and I believe that Meshal stated in an interview that Israel has reneged on every agreement since Oslo and that is why Hamas takes a hard line. It will want results first. But I doubt that it can happen that way either. Yes they will continue to lose. Do you realize that 70 % of Palestinians and Israelis have been born since the 1967 war? It has become institutionalized. The Israelis under 40 think of the occupation and land expropriations as the natural order of things. The Palestinians under 40 have never known Israel except as an enemy occupation force. BTW, Netanyahu has made clear that Israel will maintain control of Palestinian airspace. Israel will never allow the Palestinians complete sovereignty
