They reveal that Israel completely lacks any STRATEGIC thinking. Because once you accept the idea of "two states" then the vital STRATEGIC imperative for Israel is obvious i.e. the "other state" must be made as viable as you can make it. Because if it isn't then Israel will end up with anarchy on its borders and Who. Needs. That? Yet the papers shows that Israel is only capable of thinking TACTICALLY e.g. "the border line proposed by Israel was based on solely one element: the number of Israelis who will have to be evacuated". That's a TACTICAL consideration from politicians who are too cowardly to tell the Israeli public the truth i.e. that *some* settlements were deliberately designed to make a Pal state unviable, and *those* settlements simply make no STRATEGIC sense once you agree to a "two-state-solution". STRATEGIC considerations should therefore lead to Israel conceding them to Abbas, but the Israeli politicians simply can not comprehend that, and neither can Arieli.
