    such arrangements that the US administration is negotiating with the Palestinian leaderships. The aim is to stop the injustices which Israel inflicts on the Palestinians so that the US will not be mired in Israel’s legal problems at the ICC. What will happen next is impossible to predict. In fact the Gaza settlement came as a total surprise to me so I will not hazard guesses about the West Bank. The only sure indicators are that the US is focusing on improving the well-being of the Palestinians through enhancing their chances of fruitful economic activity. The payoff is that the Palestinians will not go to the ICC shooting with both barrels. Since the two-state plan shows no sign of coming back into the world of the living, Israelis should realize that Palestinian economic expansion will occur within the Israeli economy, in other words greater economic integration for the Palestinians. And the rest, I leave to your imagination. Salam, Shalom, and do enjoy the remaining days of this balmy November.
