    Is this not the substance of the crisis? What the Palestinians - both Fatah and Hamas - want is a Palestine and Israel along the 1967 'green line' border. What Israel wants is everything. Once upon a time there were Israelis who mattered and who would have accepted an outcome substantially along the green line,' But over thirty years ago those Israelis were dumped into the dustbin of reality and Israelis who have no intention of allowing Judea and Samaria to be shared with Arabs won. Abbas has never had a chance, no matter how much he wished peace. The Israeli right will never allow any 'Palestinian' state within the boundaries of 'Greater Israel.' Nor, ultimately, will they allow the eventual Arab majority which will happen in the next quarter century. Mr. Abbas, and ALL arabs, in Judea and Samaria, or Israel, will just have to find somewhere else to live. Ehud Barak would be a far more sympathetic individual were he not such a perfidious and despicable man.
