    We have the "man of peace", the great compromiser, Shimon Peres, quoted as saying that Israel will remove some settlements but probably not most settlements. They will stay where they are and, apparently, will grow. In order for Olmert to pick up on the Saudi proposal which seems to be gaining momentum, Israel would have to agree to return to the '67 borders or equitable, mutally agreed upon land exchange, East Jerusalem as the capital of Palestine, and an agreement on the refugee question, wit an understanding that not all refugees will be allowed to return to pre '48 Israel. Israel has already made clear it is not willing to compromise on most of these points. What it offers the Palestinians is a series of banutstans, disjointed, basically for Israel to get the towns of the WB out of their hair and hold onto the rest. If Israel agrees to none of these points, what then is its position? How do they envision a state alongside theirs?
