    "Personally,I have not heard any serious objection to it (from the jews)other than its unfamiliarity." - Lakshmi Lakshmi, since I myself tried to explain to you why this proposal is impossible, I can only conclude that you hear only what you want to hear. And I suspect much of what you hear comes from your own head. I tried to explain to you that in the last 60 years Jews were streaming into the country and settling all over the place, regardless of whether the area was within the borders of Resolution 181 or outside of them. This means that if a Palestinian State was to be created along the 181 borders, millions of Jews will be uprooted and become refugees. A very simple fact, that to any realist will make the proposal disconnected from reality. I assume that if you raise this proposal with any Palestinian, he would say: "Why not"? But ordinary people are not political leaders. No political leader of the Palestinians has adopted this proposal, because political movements are ultimately bound by reality. If they think that Israel is beatable, especially with the help of Allah, they want everything. If they are after some compromise, then they have to look at what is possible. And Res 181 is impossible so they go for the Green Line. Let me suggest again that you try to reach Palestinians and convince/create some political movement that will adopt your idea. On this site it sounds laughable.
