    Don't forget, Israel's gains beyond the 1947 partition plans, giving it 78 % of Palestine, instead of 53% should fall into the category of gains by war which is illegal under the Geneva Conventions. Yet the PLO accepted the 22% left of Palestine as their state under the Oslo Accords, UN resolution 242, and recognition of the State of Israel. Israel missed the opportunity for peace and instead expanded over most of the West Bank, East Jerusalem and the Jordan Valley leaving practically little that could form a viable state. Unless there is a complete withdrawal to the green line, any other solution would be anathema to the Palestinians. There is still a chance for peace with justice, but with the current extreme and ultra right (tending to fascist) make-up of the government, only an imposed solution on the lines of a state that the Palestinian now wish to bring to the UN, will hold any chance of success.And recognition of the Right of Return, and acknowledgement of Israel's part in the Nakba would help.

Alvy (Woody Allen) and Annie (Diane Keaton) in 'Annie Hall.'
Why is it hard to fall in love, and even harder to sustain it?

The answer can be summed up in one word, narcissism, which manifests itself in three principal ways. There are ways to overcome this love of self, however.
