Israel will never find peace or prosperity while it covets the land of the Palestinians, presently occupying 77% of the original land of Palestine to 23% beyond the green line and in Gaza. The Green Line is the last straw, Mr. Netanyahu. All that is beyond it is off limits, no less than Ecuador and Bolivia are off limits to Jewish annexation. Do yourself, and your people, and the whole world a favour - and respect the rights of the indigenous people of Palestine - the Palestinians. Do that first. Security comes second. In fact, security without that first priority is worse than worthless, it is a dangerous illusion, leading to global war.
