The NYT[^] came up with 3 proposed land swap maps with 3.7-4.7% of the area in question changing hands. (For reference in 08 the negotiating positions were 6.3% and 1.9%.) Even the most modest of the proposals (3) ends up with farcically undefendable borders; and while the map doesn't show Palestinian communities the most likely reason for some of the connections looking just wide enough to hold roads is snaking between them; so I doubt that bumping the size of the swap areas up to apply something approaching sanity to the borders would be feasible without massive dislocations.
Did you ever see history portrayed as an old man with a wise brow and pulseless heart, waging all things in the balance of reason?
Is not rather the genius of history like an eternal, imploring maiden, full of fire, with a burning heart and flaming soul, humanly warm and humanly beautiful?
