    I noticed that it was stressed by George Bush, that there will be two national states, one Palestinian and one " a homeland for the Jewish people". I hope that slimey types such as Saeb Erekat don't now say that Israel will be a homeland for Jews, but not a Jewish homeland (implying that it can be a state, where one day by demographic strangulation, Jews will be citizens but amongst a sea of Arabs). I don't trust people who can't say that Israel has a right to a exist as a Jewish homeland. This issue boils down to that very fact. Will the Arab/Muslim world accept Israel's right to exist as a Jewish country, or is Annapolis just a devious way of Abbas and co trying to achieve what Yassir Arafat did, but without terrorism.
