    Sad as it is that two peoples can't live together, I can't see any the solution but to create two states. If the settlers wish to take a Palestian passport fine, let them stay. But it appears they want their cakes and eat it: to stay put, keep the advantages of being Israeli, but live amidst Palestians as if they didn't exist, or have rights! There are not that many possibilities. Either two states side by side, one state with rights for all (that neither people appear to want), or the current situation where settlers live among Palestinans wishing they would go away. These territories have not been annexed so they are not Israel - and was not desirable because the same rights would have to be given to Arabs! You can't have it all ways! Time to stop blaming, accusing, and counting and come to a solution quickly! The current situation cannot last in any case! When things have calmed down in a few generation's time, why not have Jews living in Judea and Samaria under a democratic Arab state! I'm optimistic!
