    Hello, Joe Biden! According to a Haaretz article in September written by Aluf Benn, Netanyahu is in accord with a position paper published by the Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs to the effect that Israel must keep Area "C" in any peace agreement. Since Area "C" is 60% of the West Bank and since the settlements, nature reserves, settler-only roads, blockades and checkpoints turn the rest of the West Bank into a series of isolated ghettoes, it is clear that any resulting Palestinian "state" would not be a viable state with territitorial contiguity, but would be in the words of Colin Powell "a phony state that's dicied into a thousand different pieces." So, its time for the US to denounce Netanyahu's gratuitous insult to Biden, call Mitchell home and prepare to announce recognition of a Palestinian state within the pre-67 boundaries as the EU is prepared to do, and follow that up with cessation of military aid and the imposition of economic sanctions.
