Clinton, Obama, Mitchell all know full well what the position of Israel is and that it will not be altered. The entire world knows it as well and it is this: Israel has the right to build in its land and will not be told to do so. The most we will commit to is not to build in crowded urban Arab areas (yet look what they are doing in the casbah of Hebron) East Jerusalem was, is and always will be the eternal capital of the Jewish people and the idea of a foreign power establishing their capital there is anathema and will not be permitted. Palestinians can maintain their government offices in Abu Dis which will be cut off from EJ and the rest of the WB by our fortress city, Ma'ale Adumim. Urban Arab population centres will have full autonomy and can call themselves "Palestine". but control of all borders, air and sea will be controlled by Israel. In other words, they will allow a series of bantustans and let them be called "Palestinian homelands". Surely, they all know that that is the reral position of Israel.
