    ... that none of these problems would have arisen had: (1) the West Bank and Gazan Arabs created their own State between 1948-1967 with East Jerusalem as its capitol when not one Jew lived in any of these areas after having been driven out by six Arab invading armies (2) had they sought at any time between 1967-1993 to enter into proximity or direct negotiations with Israel after losing the West Bank and Gaza in the Six Day War We cannot go back to those days. The best that can be achieved is the division of sovereignty of the West Bank and Gaza between Israel,Jordan and Egypt which will enable the lives of the Arab populations of the West Bank and Gaza to be transformed as they become citizens of Arab states without having to move or leave their homes. Amira - what about doing something constructive to end the current status quo by promoting direct negotiations between Jordan and Israel so as to restore some semblance of the status quo that existed at 4 June 1967 ? You have the intelligence and the opportunity to do so as a featured journalist.in Ha'aretz.. Devote your writing to ending the conflict - not perpetuating it.
