    PLEASE! Get your heads out of the sand. THE REAL issue is that Israel exists. Have a look at all PA maps, their coat of arms, etc. It has always been and will always be "from the river to the sea". Israel's existence is a NAQBAH. Why else glorify "shahids" who slaughter Israeli citizens? One lonely, last thought. Abbas has no mandate, He represents who, given his term ended over 1 year ago? Even if all settlements we removed tomorrow, do you really think there would be give and take on "refugees"? You kow, those nth generation refugees... They forget that given that logic, we too are nth generation refugees. But then, according to the PA there was NEVER a Jewish presence in the land, EVER (oh yes, according to Abbas there was no Shoah)... Where was the objection to the Egyptian & Jordanian occupations (and the Jordanian annexation) between 1948 and 1967? Have a look at the PA charter of 1968, renouncing any claim to "the West Bank and Gaza" which they recognised as belonging to Jordan & Egypt...
