The Quartet's Tony Blair keeps talking about a deal to "address the Palestinian's aspirations for statehood", which seems to me to be totally at odds with the Palestinians viewpoint that they ARE already a state, and are simply applying for membership of this Country Club For States. What is your take on this matter? ARE they already a state (albeit one under military occupation) or are they - and the 140+ countries that support them - wrong simply because Israel and the USA say that they are not a state, merely a "disputed territory"?
