there will be no peace with or without settlements, with or without a palestinian state, if the palestinian state does not recognize israel and its right to be a jewish state. all that will happen after the creation of a palestinian state, even in all of the west bank and east jerusalem, will be a continuation of the endless campaign to delegitimize israel, endless calls for refugees to return to israel. no government with exception of some western nations may move their embassy to west jerusalem. rockets will fly into israel, and every israeli reaction will be a 'massacre'. its part of an endless fight by the palestinians to deconstruct israel by any means possible, and as long as it continues, the only effective answer to put tens of thousands of haredim in the west bank and let the battle of the breeders fight it out.
