directrob: re: 'that would mean peace" where you state that Israel could prosper. Rob - FYI, Israel does prosper, because their main goal is to depend on themselves, their own GNP, their industries - check it out. Microsoft is in Israel, Medical research is in Israel. Cell phone technology comes from Israel. Palestinian Arabs use Israeli technology. Palestinian Arabs who work and live in Israel prosper. They are quite happy to take Israeli money to help support their families in an Israel that welcomes any who want to live and work in peace. If the populace in West Bank and Gaza put their efforts into industry and peace, there would be peace.
