Not only does the Palestinian leadership say one thing here, and one thing there, on this issue the questions asked of them are incomplete.To be sure,my feeling as stated on other commentarys is that Israels new borders should be "somewhat " larger than the Bill Clinton map, plus a 2-3 mile wide permanent strip along all of the Jordan River and Dead Sea. Approaching this definition of a secure border, it will incude about 85% of the Jewish residens of the territories.

So what about the others? That is what Dr Pipes is asking with rightful concern.My feeling is that those Jewish residents should be willingly consolidated into one of about the ten largest Jewish towns left in a Palestine to be. I say this in part because I dont believe that Palestine should be Jewish free, especialIy in the context of ancestral reasons. Nowhere in the world should be Jewish free for that matter. I do think that tiny scattered mobile homes will become pogroms and kidnappings in the night, thus yes to secure borders, and yes for two handfuls of larger Israel watched Jewish towns in Palestine. But first, a few questions must be answered in all languages.

Question One . For the Jewish towns that do reside in Palestine, what happens under Palestinian law if a Jewish woman commits adultery?

Question Two. What happens to a Jewish childs arm, if he steals a simple apple from an apple cart?
