    Do "Palestinians" -- the so-called "street" as well as the politicians -- accept and agree with a 2-state solution under discussion, or not? If 70% of the PA "street" as well as Abbas and the Saudi 2002 Plan continue to demand influx into Israel of millions of hostile Arabs as a "right", then the current dialog, "Road Map", "peace process", "horizon" etc. are a waste of time. All data collected to date verifies exactly this -- pointless to debate final borders, safe passages and control of the soil under Temple Mount so end-game can again stall on "Arab Right of Return", as Oslo did. Even the "peace camp" is slowly realizing this. What to do? Easy: 1) Stop discussing a PA state because of this, 2) unilaterally annex a 15-mile belt along the Jordan Rift Valley, 3) isolate 3 PA Bantustans in Gaza/Samaria/Judea, 4) Retaliate massively for any attacks on Israel. Forget Arab League "normalization"; no loss, their rigid backing of "Arab Return" proves they were never serious about peace.

Drilling for Hamas tunnels Gaza
Hamas tunnel threat burrows into minds of Israeli military, political leaders

Hamas may have told Israel it isn’t looking for another war in Gaza, but it’s clearly desperate to advance its attack tunnels. It’s also delighted to be sowing seeds of discontent and concern among the Israeli public.

This Valentine's day, celebrate not love, but the sublime bond of friendship

Friendship is free of the indignities, suffering and drama that characterize romantic love; it doesn't have an expiration date; we rarely suspect it to be a figment of our imagination. But love is what fuels our economy.
