    you were offered 50% in 1947, you said no and made war. the real crux of the matter nabil is the creation of the PLO in 1964, created as a violent terrorist liberation group. BUT, in 1964, there were no occupied territoties....so what was the PLO created to liberate? and what was in its charter? seriously, the article lacks many facts and context. Shaath and the other reps of the PLO are living in denial. If they want a state, accept that israel is a JEWISH state, and accept some of the blame for your own part in your so called naqba. While you asre at it, maybe have the other arab countries accept blame for the miserable treatment of your fellow palestinians in other arab lands. If you want some kind of compensation, it will HAVE to go both ways..compensating jews for lost assets, businesses, land, art etc...when they were kicked out of their homes. Unilke your naqba fantasy, jews were kicked off their land in arab countries, whereas in Israel, arabs were TOLD TO LEAVE by none other than the grand mufti himself(hitlers confidant who spent the war years in berlin) only to come back once they had pushed the jews into the sea. If you want peace, own up to what you need to do and start to negotiate. 1964 IS key because it shows CLEARLY, that this was never about settlements in WB or gaza...it was ALWAYS about israel INSIDE the green line. Shaath is in my estimation, more of the same...denials, lies and refusal to really move towards TRUE peace...not just a hudna of sorts.

    from the article: Does Israel want peace or to play the blame game?
