    Aside from ownership of the land, Israel cannot allow to slim down its territory for major security reasons. How could you co-exist with people who are bent on wiping you out? Another thing, we all know that these Palestinians are Arabs. The reason why they stayed in Israel is not just for the purpose of having a land but to weaken the Jewish position. This problem must be resolved first by the neighboring Arabs by adopting their fellow brothers, not by pushing this issue to the Israelis. The total Arab territories is several hundred times wider than that of Israel. Why don't they allocate some lands for their brothers? Nobody took care of that land before the Jews came back to Israel. It was practically idle. Through hard work and determination, Israel became cultivated and blossomed Then there's the Arabs who renamed their nationality as Palestinians. This is a big conspiracy backed up by those people who want to annihilate Israel. Negotiations will come into nothing if one party's interest is to shame and dispossess you, much more if the other party sends you rocket mortars to greet your day on a daily basis. So what would you do?
