The Palestinians were never offered "a state on silver tray". Israel and Israelis had to be dragged kicking and screaming all the way to the negotiating table and after 7 years of delaying and excuses (Oslo) they finally begrudgingly started calling us Palestinians and accepting the idea of a Palestinian State. But then Barak, the bufoon, tries to offer some little cut up mini state..... Sorry bud, that won't work. Israel should simply pull out of the West Bank and then peace can finally take hold in the Holy Land. Please, your memory is so short...Israel already set the precedent in Gaza...now let us finish the job. Of course the settlers can remain so long as they become citizens and pay their taxes.
