    Israel wants peace on its terms. Its terms are that it is in charge of the entire West Bank, controlling water and transportation. The locals are to be kept on resevations in a "phony state that's diced into a thousand different pieces," in the words of Colin Powell. The locals will be given the freedom to provide for their own basic services in this phony state, but since it will be economically nonviable, they will not have the resources to provide for themselves, and so will have the freedom either to do without, or to continue relying on international charity. God forbid that Israel should take responsibility for a people it so totally dominates. A majority of the Israeli people supposedly favors an independent and viable Palestinian state. However, they elect governments that have no intention of ever agreeing to this. In short, a majority of Israelis do not want peace if that means giving up any real control of the occupied territories.
