    Barak should be viewed with the greatest caution. His words are meant to appease the US but what is he really saying? Two examples stand out. 1."and within that border will lie a solid Jewish majority for generations." That's the Jewish part. Then, for the palestininians notice what he says: "a demilitarized state but one that will be viable politically, economically and territorially; KEEPING THE SETTLEMENT BLOCS IN OUR HANDS." The question must be asked how then will #2 come to pass? How will this palestinian state be viable territorially if the settlement blocs are there? And what and where will these settlement blocs be in 5, 10, 15 yrs after "natural growth? Whose land will they take? And as for "concessions" on EJ, lets get real. Barak talks about the "12 Jewish neighbourhoods". And what are those? Is Silwan and Sheik Jareh to be considered part of those 12 Jewish neighbourhoods? This is nothing new and hardly a concession. It will give the Palestinians part of the Old City and a few areas surrounding it and that's it.
