as Norman Podhoretz has rightly insisted, "a deceptive label." A more accurate term is the "Arab war against Israel."

Exactly! That means Israel is effectively at war with every Arab nation in one form or another. It will take several generations for the Arabs -PLO or otherwise- to peacefully co-exist with Israel. By then the Arab "Trojan Horse" of demography will have destroyed Israel. Hence, the only solution is transfer, which you find unacceptable, even though history has shown to work in the cases of Turkey-Greece, India-Pak. and post-WW 2 Europe. The transfer should be voluntary, if possible, involuntary, if not.
Israel has the deed to the land and they have won every war.

By international law, if they just enforced every so-called peace agreement they currently are engaged in, the Arabs would have to return all of the land Israel gave up since '67. It's about time the Arabs are held to the same rigid standards as Israel.

Regarding Jordan, it is the closest thing to "Palestine" since the ethnic cleansing of Jews in the "East Bank" in 1922. Here again the demographic monster will determine the fate of this phony nation. And would it be so bad to have Abdullah Hussein and the family back in the Hejaz? They all share the same language, culture, religion and cuisine.

So out of Israel they should go, scattered among the nations so vast : (map) http://www.iris.org.il/sizemaps/arabwrld.htm ,where any staging ground for a "conventional" assault on the Jewish State could be dealt with between soldiers, as it should be. It's the only way to finally leave the women, children and Jew-hating diplomats out of the equation.
