Prior to 1967 , there was no West Bank occupation and no settlements . There was nothing preventing the Palestinians from declaring their independent state . I say nothing but in reality they had no interest in a two state solution . They wanted and still want the whole cake . The 6 day war was a monumental set back . Now they want to return to the starting blocks without any preconditions such as dropping RoR etc . Great strategy . Start a war , lose it and cry foul . Like a card player in a casino betting on 18 drawing a 10 and demanding his stake back from the bank . Fact is once Israel withdraws from the West Bank and Iran Hamas and Hezbollah moves in spare me the tears when Israel removes the whole putrid bunch east of the Jordan river . But at what cost !
