    When (not if) the PLO crashes the current peace talks (idiotically thinking that the planet will blame Israel and "give" them a state that does not have to recognize Israel), Israel should pursue the North Cyprus strategy that has worked so well for the Turkish occupation of the northern half of that island. Simply 1) withdraw to the 1967 armistice lines, and 2) allow the Jews of the W. Bank and Jerusalem to declare independence, the Jewish State of Judea, on all the main settlement blocs and the entire 10-mile wide Jordan River Rift valley; this will isolate the PLO Arab state on 4 sides - nothing goes in or out except on condition of good behavior, demilitarization and no foreign alliances, and no foreign diplomats allowed in to establish relations unless they also agree to relations with israel. Only Israel, Vanatau and Kiribati will establish diplomatic relations with Judea, but who gives a damn, only Turkey recognizes "North Cyprus". And "Peace with the Arab World"? - forget it, its worthless and unreliable anyway, Egypt and Jordan are enough. Gaza? Cut off its southern contact point with Egypt by a 5 km-wide strip north of Rafah, and clobber them with fuel-air explosives every time they fire a rocket, eventually they'll learn.
