    ... and, if I understand Aluf Benn correctly, he wants to achieve that by hermitically sealing the borders of that state. Yeah, well, THAT'LL work a treat, just like it did in Gaz....oh, yeah, sorry.... Benn, Bibi: the way you stop rockets getting into a future "Palestine" is the same way that Ben Gurion stopped weapons getting into the newly-minted state of Israel i.e. by allowing a strong-willed government to assert the central authority of the state. In short: not by making the West Bank and uber-prison - i.e. a gigantic Gaza Strip - but by making Palestine into an Arab version of Israel. Do THAT and there simply won't be any rockets being smuggled into Palestine, because the Palestinian govt won't allow it.
