    Let us examine the characteristics of a NATION: "A nation is a body of people who share a real or imagined common history, culture, language or ethnic origin." and we could probably add Country or Nation State to make it a modernized defintion Palestinians have the first 4, they have them in WB + Gaza, something that can be found in many parts of the ME The only thing they do not have is a NATION STATE. Out of curiousity Ms. Durson, how many "nations" are there that have the same first 4 characteristics, religion, language, culture, food and have been offered the 5th, over 4 times but THEY have always said NO? I count 1, "Palestinians", please advise the others. Why then should the cost as you term it be bourne by israel, why not have Palestinians eat the cost of their decisions, that is how the grown up world works, you make a mistake, you pay the costs of said mistake.
