Yossi Sarid is not Prime Minister. Heck, he's not even an opposition minister. As the old saying goes, talk is cheap. Yossi doesn't even have to answer to his own electorate if his plan blows up (figuratively and literally). Of course, any politician / diplomat / statesman has to answer to someone, whether its the people or the party. It's nice to loft trial balloons, but really, this holds about as much in reality as the Geneva plan. The 'unintended consequences' are truly staggering here. What happens when the PA rolls into Hebron or Yitzhar, demanding things like taxes and census information to Jews stating that they're now "Palestinians". What happens if they get run off? If they get violent and some of the Jewish Pals wind up dead? What happens when the Jews, demand protection from Israel as Israeli citizens? Yeah. Nothing like luftballoons. I'm not even going to think about how this is supposed to work out when HAMAS gets into power.
