We have had AN assassination. The Arab world has had ASSASSINATIONS. In fact, the very Arabic word "assasin" is the origin of the term assassination. We have had many political and communitiy leaders who have proposed this and similar options. Half of our leadership back in 1937 supported the proposal by the Peel Commission to devide the country consisting of a tiny Jewish state; even smaller than the UN proposal of 1947 that our leadership accepted at the time. UN rsolotion 242 to which Israel agreed talked about these territories. Menahem Begin talked about atonomy within these very territories back in 1979. Barack offered these territories to an independent Palestinian Arab state. All that we have received over the years in return have been the three NOs of Khartum and bullets, mortar, artilery fire, explosives and rockets. We have come to suspect that Palestinian Arabs do not wish to have or can not manage an independent Palestinian Arab state - a different subjet.
