The Palestinian independance, to be recognized within its 1967 borders, is a diplomatic defeat for some nut at the foreign ministry as far as it goes against an officiable, unsustainable policy; it is also, finally, a way for Israel to go forward on a less sandy ground towards someday achieving peace. What it takes is for the next Israeli voter to take this reality into account and prepare to let the the legitimate governement take over the now occupied territories in a peaceful way. Some, or a lot of illegal settler will choose to move to Israel, other might well talk them Pal into finding ways to stay. Palestinian independance base on the 1967 borders is a chance for Israel.
