In an attempt to preempt Arafat's declaration of an independent state, Israel is threatening to unilaterally declare its own borders. "In its most absolute form, Israel would separate by creating its own borders, thereby carving out a Palestinian state as well, although in a form unlikely to be acceptable to Palestinians. " Okay, now imagine trying to draw lines on a map like this!.

How soon we all forget Arafat's 1st job title...

Maybe it's less hard to forget Israel's record in this regard. Land Seizure...Ethnic Cleansing...Institutional Racism...Shooting Unarmed Civilians...etc...

What would Sharon-Barak's current job title be?
Hint hint.

I really have little, and declining, sympathy for either side in this conflict. The only thing they had going for them was the prospect that they might all grow up and learn to share. If they can't, f*** 'em.

i think the palestinians were forced to share in 1948... and deserve to have something that they don't have to share now.
