    "Barak didn`t want to grant the Palestinians a viable state." What makes a state viable? With over 55% of its land a desert, a waist 6 miles wide, a defense budget that consumes somewhere between 25% and 50% of the GNP, one could say that Israel is not viable, but it is, because its people make it so. So it should be for the Palestinians. Let Gaza become like Singapore. "Palestinians do not have an Israeli partner that will grant them a viable future." Why is it up to Israel to grant them a viable future? If their brother Arabs cared about them one tenth as much as Israeli Jews care about their brethren, there wouldn't be a problem today. "I`m sure Israelis want it, but they are not willing to pay the price, namely giving the Palestinians back the West Bank and most of East Jerusalem." Guess what? The only ones to whom the Israelis could give back the "West Bank" are the Jordanians, and they don't want it. "Barak didn`t want to do it (Ever wonder why he never showed you, the Israeli public the 80% map of Camp David?)" It was 97%, and everybody knows, except you, apparently, what was not included: Maale Adumim and Gush Etzion. "You got 78% of mandate territory Palestine." No way. Mandatory Palestine included what is today Israel, the "West Bank" and Jordan. Couldn't be more than one third. Look at a map. Let the Palestinians own up to some of their responsibility for this mess, and we'll meet them in the middle.

Why Britain’s Labour Party has suddenly become synonymous with anti-Semitism
