Howdy Tosefta; Although most of PM Fayad's pronouncments above sound reasonable and even practical, he did make two mistakes. 1. "The prime minister told Haaretz that Israel needn't be concerned over the right of return issue." Well, Israel is very much concerned about it because the Arab Ultimatum doesn't stop with a "just solution" but goes on to say, "in accordance with UNGAR 194" which does contain the word "return" in it. 2. "The prime minister rejected the option of cutting Gaza off from the West Bank, saying that it was an inseparable part of the Palestinian state." What Palestinian state? It doesn't exist yet. Hamas just seceded the Gaza Strip from the rest of the Palestinian Territories via armed rebellion a month ago and there's no way to politically or militarily glue them back together.
