    I don't think it was ever the intention to relocate the tribe to a tiny, indefensible ghetto in the mideast. When the Balfour proposal was signed, Jordan and the West Bank were to be included as the "homeland". The Arab war led to military positions in 1948 that while leaving Israel with barely 7k sq/mi, there is no doubt they would have accepted peace on those terms if it were ever offered to them. It wasn't. Another war, and now control over some "strategic depth". Why should the Jews not benefit from their adversaries military defeats in light of their refusal to make peace? The ancient homeland and key sites throughout the West Bank should be part of Israel. There is no doubt plenty of land (based on the maps I've seen, with major settlements clustered near the green line) for a Palestinian state or that could be absorbed into Jordan if Arab self-determination in their populated areas is really their legitimate goal. This idea of a "viable contigous" palestinian state is ridiculous - talk to the Vatican, Singapore, Lichenstein, Luxembourg, etc. about political viability and geography. And a Palestinian state would be surrounded by historic patrons in the Arab world. So as far as I am concerned, much ado about nothing. Peace will come when the Arabs want it and are ready for it. not any time soon, as far as I can see.
