    Just imagine what would happen if the PA would do the opposite and stimulate Palestinians to work in the settlements. Kill them with kindness, skip the dogma and go for the money. And if the PA would lose its resentment against the settlements totally, they would rob Israel of an important political weapon and stimulate their own economy. And not just do that: invite the settlers to come to the Palestinians markets and buy their stuff there; it is cheap and good! Bibi said: some settlements may come to the Palestinian state, so in the end you have two states, one with a Jewish majority and an Arab minority, and one with an Arab majority and a Jewish minority. This balance will force both states to treat their minorities equally, opposite of what happens now. The PA should stop just being annoyed and angry but push forward, beyond borders of imagination and the narrow mindset of the Israeli state.

Sanctions did not devastate South Africa or Iran. Nor will they destroy Israel; above all it will extricate Israel from a trap it is unable to get out of by itself.
