    David, Eventually, your destinies will be so bound up that you will become a single mixed population. The longer a two state solution is delayed, the more likely a one state solution will supplant it. Here is my prediction. Palestinian Arabs, for the sake of economy will gradually convert to Judaism. Their Judaism will be alike to your Judaism as Central American Catholicism is to Roman Catholicism, but they will become citizens. They will be different from their Muslim ancestors because they will become accustom to a different sort of education, democracy and out-spoken dissent. They will also not be like traditional Jews because of their history. Israel will remain the Jewish homeland but much more diversely and with very distinct Muslim influences. It is inevitable. They will be absorbed. They are already being absorbed. Slowly but surely...... Peace. Steve
