    You suggest that Israel should agree to retreat to the 1967 borders (including Tzomet Latrun and part of Highway #1?) for the privilege of negotiating a retreat from 90% of what little would then remain of Israel? What would be left under your plan? Yad Mordechai? Bet Shemesh? The two-state solution requires both states to be 'viable.' Perhaps you also want the Azrieli mall, and Plaza Hotel, that you maybe think Israelis stole from Palestinians, to be returned? Do you think they'd be returned to you? And Israel should return the cholera and mosquitos back to the Chulah Swamp also, right? And return the Israeli-Arab infant mortality rate back to pre-1948, and pre-Hadassah Ein Kerem hospital, levels? My grandmother and great grandparents were born in the Old City, and we have as much right to call it Yerushalayim as you do to call it Al-Quds. And are the Palestinians going to pay for killing my great-grandmother while she was cooking in her kitchen one 'Jemaa' in 1948?
