What a small box this author lives in. Israel has offered autonomy for the Palis so many times - starting from 1967 always to be rejected because they aren't interested in a piece for peace. They only want to "push the jews into the sea". Yes yes the Israelis are the real aggressors. I wonder what they would be importing if they had a port??? Hmmm. After all they would be shooting mortars anyway - so what's the difference - lets give them a state. Real Peace is available to them anytime they want. Recognize Israel - renounce violence. Neither one of the two costs money. Even a left wing lunatic can admit to that.
