    It is so sad that the defeatist, lack of pride, pollyana leftists can't leave go of their decades failed ideology. Their "brilliant" initiative to support a "Palestinian" state- when there are Arabs, but no such thing as "Palestinians" is a gross and existentially dangerous exercise in monologue masturbation. There is no power base- not even a minyan- of people that make a political difference in the Arab world that sincerely want and would accept an Arab state in Judea, Samaria and Gaza. Besides that it they want all of Eretz Yisrael, will not accept Jewish sovereignty on a centimeter of land here, such a state would not be a viable state- there is not way to give it natural resources- not least of which is water- which is a problem in the region, would not provide enough area for natural growth- not to mention the Arab principle of return of "refugees" (i.e.- code tactic to implode Israel.) Lording over the coastal plain and Jerusalem Corridor would be two great a temptation for the Arabs to complete the salami domino technique of wiping out the Jewish state. We have so much experience that a signed piece of paper does not last past new leadership or regime or type of government change. Time to take off the blinders and drink the bitter medicine of reality before its too late. Arab killing of Jews in the most brutal and heinous of methods like the Itamar Fogel family instance shows what the Arab real agenda is. With no Itamar left- G-d forbid- the next stop is such an attack in Ramat Aviv or Herziliya. We forget the pre-67 terrorism perpetrated in Gush Dan or along the coastal beach areas.
