Here is a better way of dealing with this matter ... stop all the negotiations at the top and substitute them with lower level officials who talk with lower level Pal officials. They can talk about how to integrate services like buses and water and garbage collection etc.If the Pals won't talk just do it unilaterally. Move on to 'life as she is lived'. Stop trying to 'square the circle'. The Pals cannot accept any agreement with Israel and altho' Gideon Levy is fundamentally right ... Israel is happy to go on as she is now ...the Pals also are happy to go on as it is now. Israeli soldiers/officials should try and get over the grubby racist way they treat the Pals and try 'soft power'...politeness,manners,'live and let live', They will find that this makes a difficult situation more manageable for all involved. Gideon, why should the Pals do a deal?? Allah has never abandoned the muslims and won't abandon the Pals ... all they have to do is keep fighting. They believe this.
