We glibly hear of West Bank Gaza Arab state.What does Israel do with 500,000 Jews of the West Bank especially those close to Arab hotbeds like Nablus. If they won't go back to Israel, shoot them or leave them to fight for survival when IDF withdrawel occurs? Do we just send in useless UN Peace Observers as has occured in many genocide situations?

\How does a 2 state Gaza and the West Bank trade? A fenced off road or does Israel open her borders to all? The USA spends millions on keeping Mexicans hungry for work out. What can be expected of Arab terorists hungry for revenge? Or do we expect Arab anger to just dissipate like the supposed buddy association occuring now having forgotten the hundreds of killings between Hamas and Fatah over the Hamas Gazan takeover! Gaza has access to the sea but destroyed/lost 90% of her factories between 2005 and 2007, who is going to invest money and sett up industries in a landlocked West Bank? 60% of the Gazan population is under 25 years of age and are jobless. The same demographic problems prevale in the West Bank. How many years will it take to stablise this are even though one see's GNP growths of 9% listed for the West Bank! How many West Bankers will then turn their attention to blaming Israel and lobing rockets etc especially with the propergandising of various Mullahs? It took less than 3 months of Nazi propagander to activate the Latvians to kill their Jews, a country without any previous anti-semitic history!

How many of the dispersed 4.3 Arab refugees are going to rush "home" to the West Bank making the situation worse. What happens in a devided Jerusalem? Those wanting to remain under the Israelies where they get pensions, hospital care .....? How many Arabs will flood into Israel under claims of devided families as occured with the Berlin Wall? If Hamas recognises Israel tomorrow, how long can a Peace agreement be expected to last? Will it be a Egyptian model Peace type agreement?
