I have read 121 posts and not one of them has mentioned any of the following facts: 1. Jews lived in the West Bank and Gaza prior to being driven out in 1948 by the Egyptian and Jordanian armies. 2. The Arabs had 19 years to create a sovereign Arabs-only State in the West Bank and Gaza between 1948-1967 when not one Jew lived there but failed to do so. 3. Jewish rights to settle in the West Bank and Gaza to reconstitute the Jewish National Home were conferred by the League of Nations in the Mandate for Palestine and preserved by article 80 of the United Nations Charter. 4. The West Bank and Gaza are 6% of historic Palestine, Israel is 16% and Jordan makes up the remaining 78% of historic Palestine. If Israeli and Palestinian Authority negotiators cannot first agree on these facts, then any negotiations between them are doomed to failure. The only possible compromise in my view is the division of sovereignty in the West Bank and Gaza between Jordan,Israel and Egypt.
