Hi Mark, I afraid that land and water issues are not easier than a "right of return" one since it was a sticking point in Camp David talks. I don't see any indication that Mahmoud Abbas backed off. And creation of a Palestinian state and "right of return" are mutually exclusive issues. So sadly we won't see a Palestinian state around any time soon.
