    In what sense could the common sense be impossible? Only in the sense of Bibi, Lieberman, settlers, lefties, and the like-minded people. Millions of Palestinian aspiring for an independent state where they can live in peace and dignity has become something impossible in Israel. Perhaps what constitutes such a state is even more impossible such as Jerusalem, borders, resources, security, etc. One would ask WHY? Why would anyone deny their rights to live just like any other people in the world? If anyone would say that Israel has left Gaza and now Hamas is ruling there I would ask, are you serious about that? No real independence, full control over land, borders, sky, and water! Isn't that absolute occupation! My fear is that this struggle will continue as long as this cancerous occupation grows up. When would the free people and the free world help the Pals just live there lives? Israel has made it impossible...
