    The "temporqary" tends to become permanent in this conflict, and the Palestinians, who were promised in Oslo a state by 1999, know it very well and oppose it. They are doing everybody a favor in opposing it because there is no reason for delay. The situation is bad enough and will only get worse, and all the possible solutions are known already, so why not tackle the issue? All can be resolved within a year if the parties are interested in a resolution. Netanyahu is too fearful of his party to give up any more land, so he prefers the hard choices to be made by somebody else (after he retires). But Israel will lose by the delay. We will have constant friction between the settlers and the Palestinians on the issue of settling the disputed areas and Jerusalem. In the meantime, the Palestinian state will be recognized, probably even sitting on the Security Council and generating constant trouble with the international community. Hatred towards Israel will also not cease.
