Several issues stand in the way of an agreement, including Turkish demands of unfettered access to the Gaza Strip, and Hamas activity in Turkey.17:16 11.02.16 | 0 comments
There are LOTS of questions that are never answered, Mr Beilin. 1) When will a future Palestine be an economically viable state if they start to build one NOW and what are they supposed to live on meanwhile? Who will pay and why? 2) Let us assume that Arabs in Israel are well informed about their environment: let us have a consensus among them, ask them how many would relocate to the West Bank/Gaza for the same economical compensation as Jews are supposed to get when moving the other direction. If they do not believe in it, how can anyone else believe? 3) The settlers are so named, as far as I know, because they were thrown out of WB/G for 19 years. Am I correct? 4) If all the handouts to Palestinians were canalized via Jordan, with the goal a peaceful Middle East more or less according to the Elon Plan - who would lose except some who now have political and economical power in WB/G? Jordan is 78% and WB/G 5% of the old Mandate.
