The trouble is Pete that the Pals have nothing to bargain with. They have recognised Israel. They have given up terrorism. Israel has basically all it wants. It has the land. It has a crushed and quiet Pal population. It has the water resources. It has the security of controlling the Jordan valley and the Pals' external borders. It has the military might. It has it all. There CAN'T be fair negotiations between Israel and the Pals. The most Israel will offer is a Bantustan which is basically the current PA, with a possible slightly bigger state, maybe, perhaps in 15-20 years: 15-20 years in which the settlements will expand and Israel can change its mind. You think the Pals should leap at that? Or do you think they should wait for world opinion to turn against Israel as it is doing and for the world to force Israel out of the whole WB?
