How can he worry about Palestinian autonomous zones within Israel, if Israel has no defined eastern border? Sixty-two years without defining a border kind of disqualifies a nation from demanding homogenous government within its, um, "borders". If a state considers its neighbors' land fair game for acquisition regardless of contiguity or who else lives there, why should the neighbor not respond in kind (not that I think this threat is realistic)? On the other hand, citizens do tend to revolt and seek local autonomy when national funds and services are squandered and misallocated. Nobody wants to work extra hard to make life easier elsewhere for somebody else. About which road to peace, Lieberman has already stated his preference for the "at least ten years" road. At least Bibi speaks of peace in a year, although I do not know whether he is sincere or not.
