    Once again, the Arab proposal is the only sane way out of the tragic mess...but Israel will never let it happen. Expect to hear conciliatory, "reasonable" words out of Tel Aviv until the time comes to make hard, fast and "painful" decisions. Then will come the impossible conditions with regard to territory and refugees, and the talks will collapse. After all, Israel has survived and even thrived during forty years as an occupying tyrant, and it is prepared to wait another forty or as long as it takes to install an amenable puppet in Ramallah. Why? Because Israel has painted itself into a corner from which there is no political or economic escape. Some months ago, on the basis of figures from the Gaza evacuation, I calculated that it would cost $80 billion to evacuate 250,000 settlers from the occupied West Bank. I have recently seen figures placing settler numbers at closer to 500,000. What Israeli government is going to raise $150 billion for this task? Who is going to foot the bill?
