    ..meaning a Palestinian state in WB and Aza, they would have had it a long time ago. Then they would have had worked long and hard to build institutions, they would have opted for non-violence, and most of all, the building of civil society would have made the settler issue obsolete. Israel is not Arab-free (G-d forbid) and there is no reason why the future Palestine should be Jew-free. If the Palis had been working towards statehood instead of war for all this time it would only ne a matter of drawing a line and let the settlers continue living the Pali state under Pali rule if they wished too. The settlers are a crafty bunch and would be an asset (with a very few criminal exceptions) to the Pali state. Unfortunately the two-sate solutions were never anything but a masqureade on part of the Palis. Sad but true.
