    "Contiguous" means "touching, in direct contact at one (1) point". Not "Continuous". The PA state can never be "contiguous" because 34 miles of Israeli soil separates "W. Bank" from Gaza. So it matters not if W. Bank is "contiguous" or not, PA residents STILL have to cross Israeli lines to get to the other parts, and so what - USA is not "contiguous", have to cross Canada to get to Alaska, and USA is not "non-viable" as a result! PLUS - people whining about "contiguity and "tunnels" need to look at a map - even with Israel holding the Ariel/Latrun/Adumim/E1 corridor/Etzion zones (and they WILL), the PA state on the W. Bank is still 14 miles at its narrowest, while Israel is only 9 miles wide at its narrowest, between Tulkarem and Qalqiliya. So claim the resulting PA state would be non-viable is pure crap, its still wider than Israel. No "international law" can force Israel to allow PA residents to cross its soil to Gaza - PA Arabs need to negotiate for that. The price is peace.

Sara Netanyahu's house of horrors

People who have the misfortune to work in the Prime Minister’s Residence live in a milieu of terror in its classic sense: a place in which fear and dread are imposed by means of violence, force and threats. This has now been established by a court ruling.
