    funny that the West Bank was annexed from Jordan, which, by the way is 78 percent of the Palestinian mandate, and so should have been called Palestine from the beginning. So if Israel withdraws from the West Bank, it's still administered by Jordan. And with all the money that has poured in from the US, the EU and the Arab League, the fact that there are still refugee camps in the West Bank reflects worse on the PA than it does on Israel. Let's not get blinded by this fad of sympathy with the Palestinian cause you Europeans. We all know it's just a hobby for you. Why don't you recognize an independent Chechnya? or Tibet? or South Sudan? face it. You have no idea. Maybe you just hate Jews AGAIN. or maybe you're not as smart as you convinced yourselves you are. Remember you thought the world was flat when everyone else was calculating its circumference a thousand years before.
