1: Why on earth would they do that? Tell me the last time a country got invaded, beat back the invaders, took some land and then had to give it back??? In any case, even if they did that it couldn't happen without both sides reaching an agreement. Again, Arafat was offered everything he asked for and still rejected it.
2: There are stupid people on both sides.
3: I'm not sure what 'rederic' means. Let's assume 'rhetoric'. Perhaps: but I'm a great believer in peace; I just see no way for that to happen in the current context. I alos belive that if someone says they want to kill you then that is a really stupid time to lay down your weapons and hold out an olive branch.

Whatever it is that the Palestinians want they won't get it unless and until they acknowledge the right of Israel to exist and to unequivocally denounce violence. Oh and to stop threatening to drive all jews into the Med.

You are correct that this is not an easy issue and nor is a solution going to be easy to come by. If I had my way I'd move Israel completely out of the Middle East. So what if there are some ancient sites and some holy places. Are they really worth all the trouble to keep them (for either side)? Not going to happen, of course since I can't see where else they could go. Maybe north of Perth in Oz or New Mexico? Peace is a nice dream.
