    Is this not the great question? And is it not the question which those on these forums both deny, and assert? That Israel wants all of Judea and Samaria and has no interest in peace? Why must those who think they represent Israel both refute and affirm? Why not just be honest and claim that Israel includes all of East Jerusalem, Judea and Samaria? What is the deep need to claim that the goals of the Israeli right, which has total control of Israel, do not exist, and are not the goals of Israel? The old saying 'Better Blatant than Latent' applies to homosexuals, and I agree. I find it far easier to accept the presence of blatant homosexuals than those who are 'latent' and need to deny their reality. So how do we accept the 'latent' folks who pretend that their goal is not total domination of Judea and Samaria? The right is fundamentally dishonest. It knows it's goals are no different than those of the Nazis who sought 'Living Room' carved out of the 'inferior men' of the east.
