What if Palestinians do in 2011 or 2012 what Israelis did in 1948? Some here think Israelis living in the new Palestine will rise like the Arabs did in 1948. That prospect didn't stop the Israelis in 1948. Did it? The real question is what will the government of Israel do? Will it act like Egypt and Jordan did in 1948?

Or will Bibi play George III?
