The Palestinian problem is not the central problem in the region. Arab countries never wanted a Palestinian state. Palestinians never wanted a Palestinian state. When the PLO was founded and the Arabs held all territories, the destruction of Israel was the aim, not a separate state. Today, and all polls show this, the Palestinians want TWO states which would sooner or later merge into one: besides a Palestinian state they want a binational Israel with all Palestinian refugees and which would soon be another Arab country. Short, they have not accepted Israel as a Jewish State and therefore they rejected Taba where 97% of the territories including Jerusalem were offered. The Palestinians will continue to reject everything as long as they can put hope in a nuclear Iran and the help from its pawns like Hamas. The trip by Olmert dealt rightly with Iran and not with the Palestinians. First the core issue must be solved and this is the nuclear time bomb ticking in Iran.
