Re: "Facts on the ground" It is an interesting phrase isn't it? Here's the WIKIpedia definition; "Facts on the ground is a diplomatic term that means the situation in reality as opposed to in the abstract. It originated in discussions of the Israeli?Palestinian conflict, where it was used to refer to Israeli settlements built in the occupied West Bank, which were intended to establish permanent Israeli footholds in Palestinian territory." I think the phrase is accurate - I can't imagine a scenario where Israel will give up any of the major settlements built near or on the green line.
