At this point, temporary borders are the most unrealistic solution of all. The begrudgers on our side will be rewarded by yet another postponement while, as Mr. Lincoln points out, no-one will be able to stop whatever government is in place from building where it likes on the pretext that the plan existed before the agreement on temporary borders. Mr. Strenger, your article started out promisingly. There is a dissonance between the religious aspirations and the political aspirations that needed to be pointed out to the seculars (the religious don't function on logic). Uri Avnery points out in his weekly piece that Israel is a state built on the biblical lands of the Palestinians, while the West Bank is actually the biblical land of the Jews. The state of Israel professes to be secular. It should knuckle down to reality and be made to negotiate with a clearly specified purpose. 1967 borders, division or sharing of Jerusalem is a generous settlement. Don't let them get mean.
