We know,contrary to UN resolution 242 , the Palestinians demand all of the disputed West Bank. It also seems they wish to hyper populate Israels pre war borders as well. How does one know? In addition to what Dr Pipes has written, when some land swaps have been suggested to the Palestinians, they have refused lands from Israel proper that has large Palestinian towns-like Umm el Fahm. Its a population within and rifle from without strategy. Have you ever heard of a country to be, (Palestine), not wanting their own kind? In Israels final border, 4 of these large Palestinian towns, right on the old Green line, should be, -like it or not ,-ceded to Palestine as the fully Palestinian towns they are. East Jerusalems Palestinians should receive one represented seat in the Knesset, yet vote in numbers,nationally, with future Palestine in a careful arrangement. The four suggestive Palestinian towns,along with East Jerusalems Arabs equal about 435,000 Palestinians. And PS, Israel should make it "easy as a smile" for the 250,000 Russians who are religion in betweeners, to more easily convert to, or reaffirm themselves as Jewish. Israels religious should weigh in far less on this subject. Their beards have grown over their eyes on this and other matters.
