    Zoom out and out of the few hill tops of construction in question and the housing area they cover in relation to the whole middle east is absolutely miniscule, yet so very demanding of international attention and involvement. Abbas finally had the courage recently to announce his assessment that the Palestinians made a grave mistake back in 1947-48 by not accepting the proposed borders for a Jewish and Arab State. No other Arab-Islamists cared to publicly acknowledge this rare truth in what Abbas declared in desperation at the time but they all know this to be so true and yet they remain so intractable in all their impossible demands that Israel return to its more vulnerable position so their poorly disguised violence and covetousness can gamble for it with force yet again. What will Israel do in the vacuum of no serious and comprehensive unity amongst the Palestinians for real peace talks? She will build where others failed to do so for centuries.
