    I have to say that I'm disappointed that the best response Canada can muster to the endless construction in the West Bank is to act as Israel's PR agency.

    It is woefully one sided, painfully short-sighted and not beneficial to Canada's normally positive reputation abroad. It seems to me that the Canadians have simply crumpled into the lap of lobbyists.

    Regardless of how one sees an eventual solution to the Palestinian issues - the construction are an extremely hostile and counter-productive move.

    Once again Saigon. Abbas was offered 93%, which is virtually all, of the West Bank (as well as Gaza being completely under control of the Palestinians, and sharing East Jerusalem. He rejected.

    It seems to me that the far more serious consquences that the "palestinians"
    will face is COUNTER CLAIMS -----I believe that "counter claims" is the real
    reason that the "goldstone" report came to nothing----and ----as a general rule
    why pali claims against Israel always come to nothing.

    Really...you keep on repeating this - however, negotiations were never completed because Olmert had to step down - an unforseen event.

    Isn't the same agreement Native Americans accepted in their first of many treaties by Colonists? My message to the Palestinians : If you give them 3 % next time they will want just 10 % and you'll be done. don't give an inch.

    With all due respect, Toastman, what Israel did NOT offer was what was key here.

    Also - when you post this, please do be clear that you are referring to a map drawn on a napkin. Otherwise you make it sound like a formal and real offer - which it patently was not.
