    The Palestinians have always claimed that time is on their side. They NEVER had any intention to accept Israel’s right to exist, let alone live in peace with them. As regards to land for peace, let’s remember that Assad signed a peace treaty (which may be made null and void by the current political milieu in Egypt) conditional to getting back Sinai but NOT Gaza: he did not want the Palestinian headache. Similarly, the king of Jordan made peace but did not want the West Bank because he remembered only too well the Palestinian efforts to assassinate him. As long as the rest of the world (and indeed the suicidal liberals in Israel) continue promoting a pipe dream concept of a Palestinian State, there will be an existential threat to Israel. The only realistic solution is for Egypt to take back Gaza, and for Jordan to re-incorporate the west Bank. This way, Israel will negotiate with established governments rather than with terrorist organizations. As regards to the Palestinian right of return, Israel has assimilated millions of refugees from all over the world, including the persecuted Jews from Arab countries. I do not understand the reluctance of the Israeli Government to broach this point when negotiating with international politicians.
