Response to shira (Reply #86)

88. I support Geneva but not the settlement position it takes.

That is a legitimate position. I'm not obligated to back the settlement position of Geneva to back the overall accord.


Preserving them would mean the Palestinians wouldn't have CONTIGUOUS control of the West Bank, but would have to pass through Israeli checkpoints even to get from one part of their own country to another.

That, by itself, would mean Palestine wouldn't be a real country at all...since the sovereignty of a real country has to be absolute.

Surely, nobody anywhere should have limits to how quickly they can and cannot traverse the territory of their own nation, right?

And what land swaps would there even be? It would be useless, for example, for Palestine to get the Negev. Nothing can be done with THAT particular area of land.
