In 1948, the Palestinians rejected what they now concede was a fair land partition, and tried to deprive the Jews of their share. That deal is gone. In 1968, the Palestinians rejected Israel in its 1967 borders -- "no recognition, no negotiation, no peace". That deal is gone. In 2000, the Palestinians rejected an independent state in Gaza and 94% of the W. bank, with a capital in the AbuDis area of E. Jerusalem, because they wanted to take over Israel as well ("right of return"). That deal is gone. There will come a time in the not too distant future, when those Bantustans and that swiss cheese you talk about will look pretty damn good. And that deal will be gone, too. Maybe Palestinians should stop playing Texas Hold'em Poker, especially with friends like you telling them to go "All In" with the crappy cards they hold. They did this to themselves. Time to fold, stop crying in their beer and get on with their lives. They can be HongKong, they will not be allowed to be North Korea.
