According to the Beilin-Abed Rabbo Geneva plan, Jerusalem will be one city but sovereignty will depend on the population: Israeli for Jewish neighborhoods, Palestinian for Arab neighborhoods. Also, there was some formula for the number of refugees actually returning, and this came to about 10,000. It is no surprise that the Palestinians agreed to Geneva. Abed-Rabbo was close to Arafat and nowadays works for Abbas. Geneva is the most reasonable plan around, and it would have been good for Israel to take it. The sad thing is that after many diplomatic and other losses, Geneva will ultimately be how the conflict ends. In the meantime, Netanyahu is wasting everybody's time.
