The Palestinians know perfectly well the 'temporary' borders would become permanent ones. So rather than the whole 22% of their homeland that they would like, they settle 'temporarily' for 15% or so -- and it won't be the choicest 15%, we can be sure of that. 'Temporarily,' Israel will make sure she controls all the aquifers, for example. The Palestinians are ever going to move the Israelis out of what they've 'temporarily' acquired? Sure they are. Explain to me how Israel is going to feel compelled to do that. The fact of the matter is that if Israel had any wisdom at all, she would run, not walk, to give the Palestinians the whole 22% in exchange for their signature on the dotted line. The alternatives are (a) committing genocide against the Palestinian people (not gonna happen), (b) accepting a nondenominational single-state solution (works for me, but not exactly what Hertzl had in mind), or (c) continuing on a course that can only end with the destruction of Israel.
