    There is no feasible solution on the horizon while Israel keeps stealing land, illegally settling occupied territory and bumping off protesters and opponents. Nor is the USA's involvement of any assistance at all, it is led by the nose by its Zionist lobby and vote and has achieved nothing in the past 40 years to restrain its little friend's land-greed in the region. It is time the rest of the free west bypass Israel and AIPAC and start to put 242 into practice. There have to be two independent sovereign states and one of them is Palestine. Let us therefore get Palestine ready for independence and recognize it on Fayyad's timetable. If Israel then refuses to withdraw its troops at that point, it's on a collision course with the EU. If it wants its biggest market closed to it and financial sanctions imposed, great. A lot of people have had enough of this Eretz Israel ethnic-nationalist nonsense, time for the EU to roll sleeves up and get hands dirty.
