    A. We will give the Pals a little more security control in their bantustan, except that Israel will still raid it at its whim. B. We may encourage some commerce, though not if the Pals continue to boycott settlement produce, which rules that one out. C....Err, there's not a C, so that's it. What a pathetic excuse for a 'plan', the man obviously doesn't have a clue. In this he reflects much of Israeli society, who hope that by avoiding the difficult questions they will somehow get to keep the illegally-annexed land, illegal settlements and enforced Jewish ethnic, legal and military domination over Israeli and Palestinian Arabs. The FM should know better than most that these goals are completely impossible and have reduced international support for Israel to its lowest level ever and and support for tangible action against it to its highest. The man is a complete joke, with the intellectual ability of a newt.
