"The occupation is the best of all evils" Only for those with a penchant for 'end times' fantasies. "...Arafat (a confessed terrorist)..." Yeh, like Shamir and Begin were boy scouts... "Arafat turned down 95% of WB" According to 'most' readings of International Law, the Palestinians are entitled to 100%, anything given up should be compensated with a 1:1 land swap. That was never offered at Camp David. The more generous offer at Taba was close enough but Barak withdrew from negotiations weeks before elections, Arafat did not walk away. "You don`t get another state after that" ...says Lisa. As for 'naive talkbackers', I think its a trifle naive to believe that a worsening demographics that will wee one in three non Jews in Israel proper within two decades and a population of up to 7 million Palestinians in the OT's, combined with the ever worsening economic outlook for a busted USA, will not create the perfect storm for Israel in the absence of a two state solution.
