"What we are talking about is Israel and the Palestinian Arabs ... " (Tim R) Yes of course, I noticed. But not exactly: I rather prefer to talk about their leaders. In the context of this debate - about how to end our conflict with the stateless population we took control of 42 years ago - talking about "THE Palestinians" as a whole, which has its own and unique opinion and is expressing it with one voice, as one man, is a serious mistake. Like we had when occupied by foreign military forces, they too have their own moderates and pragmatists, and their own intransigents. On how to end their conflict with us, they are as divided as we Israelis are. "What Israel expected or did NOT expect from Egypt and Jordan is entirely irrelevant." (Tim R) I can't object more strongly to that. What we expected from Egypt and Jordan was peace and acceptance of the existence of our country as a given fact - against occupied land. This is what we negotiated with their representatives, and finally got, I can't see no reason at all to expect anything more from any of our neighbours, the Palestinian state-to-be included. Ps: In my previous post #114, instead of "a definition of country", please read "a definition of our country".
