    I disagree Yaakov.I think that their IS still the possibility of a Two State solution.Whatever Sharon is doing,I believe is for security purposes and not biblical Imperialsm. There is going to be international pressure against Israel and these issues will have to be negotiated for Israel to have secure borders. There is a shift of land to and of the palestinians and later when everyone can speak without the rockets going overhead and the IDF running in to each refugee camp looking for militants,they can forge a peace deal that is tolerant for all the parties.We can go around and around the circle of issues but the palestinians need to end up with their dignity (no matter if their leaders never gave them that) and also enough land to prosper and Israel has to end up with secure borders.Jerusalem is not exclusively Jewish and should be up for discussion definately when it can be spoken about when each people can trust the other because there is no way it can happen before. I ask all of you to try to work together to make things better and stop using your energy to agitate. If you are a fundamentalist,then there is no point being in the discussion in the first place.
