"He started it" is not a valid argument once you pass kindergarten. The illegal settlements and annexing of land by the 'security wall' is clear land-grabbing happening in the present day. (One could argue about political use of building permits and planning law as well, but settlements and the wall are unarguable.) The original proposed border is fine (even Hamas said they'd be fine with an Israel that big a few years ago, at least to the extent of an 'extended ceasefire' which if you read between the lines is acceptance), and if that's all Israel was then there would be no problem.

I'm sure giving the land outside Israel back to Jordan/Egypt would go down just as well as a new Palestinian state.

If you don't see the 'take our position before we'll even begin to negotiate' about the Israeli position on militants (hard to control them when Israel stops you having a functional state), Hamas's charter etc then there is no hope for you. The current Palestinian position is an unfortunate emulation of the Israeli one and a product of the fact that when they did 'compromise' (with Arafat), they got nothing and Israel continued to take more of their land.

(As an aside, I'm pretty surprised this is still in the Lounge.)
