other than a temporary truce? Whether you're talking about 20% of the West Bank or 5% of the West Bank, you're talking about a pretty small area. If you were just talking about real estate, there would have been a deal long ago. What you are talking about is symbolism. Palastinian Brit finds it bad that there are swimming pools in Gaza and car washers in Efrat while he says Pals get water every two weeks. The angst sounds far fetched as Pals would build pools if they could afford it and wash cars if they had them, but once more, Palastinian Brit is concerned about the symbolism. This is the nub of the problem. If symbolism is the problem, why would Palastinain Brit stop there if Israel returned to the green line? Would Israel not remain a symbolic cause of angst? An explanation for Palastinain failure? A focal point for Palastinian beligerence? Does Pal. Brit. ultimately have more to offer than Hamas: a decade worth of truce?
