An Iranian embassy in the West Bank? Land for Peace? Israel withdrew from Lebanon and in got in return Hezbollah missiles. Israel withdrew from Gaza and got in return Hamas missiles.

If they want independence, they must negotiate seriously with Israel and guarantee Israeli security. Otherwise, let them twist in the wind until the end of time.
