    Arik, what ridiculous nonsense! Israel is already 'annexing' Judea & Samaria, and has been doing so since 1967. 20% of the West Bank is covered by Israeli Jewish colonies, another 40% by Israeli military zones. How can you be unaware of this. In effect, what Israel is doing, is to herd those Palestinians it cannot force out into little 'bantustans' where they will constitute readily available, cheap labour reserves for the Jews who are colonising the rest of the land. THAT is what Apartheid was all about in South Africa, and just like under Apartheid my black compatriots were denied the right to participate in national politics, just so the Palestinians are being denied the right to determine their own destiny. Of course, no one expects Israel to actually come right out in the open and acknowledge the truth of the matter. After all, yours is a 'democratic' country, isn't it? HA!
