    At Camp David, Arafat walked out because Palastinian refugees would be allowed only into a Palastinain State and not a Jewish State. In the discussions between Olmert and Abbas, Olmert offered to take in a nominal number of Palastinains into pre-'67 Israel, and Abbas said that would not suffice. The hard question is whether Palastinans want a state on the West Bank and Gaza enough to resettle refugees in that state. Some commentators who support a two state solution have said that frankly, the answer is no and that Palastinians would not support a two state solution unless, in the Jewish counterpart, Arabs were able to eventually dominate demographically. That two state solution means one state for the Palastinians and the other state for the Palastinians as well. Those same comentators speculate that by doing nothing, Palastinains will end up in that demographic position anyway so why bother with a two state solution. You need to explore that thoroughly before reaching your conclusion that Israelis are missing an opportunity.
