6. This is the same old song and dance all over again
Israel and her partners know what they are doing - they will eventually annex the whole of West Bank and Gaza. I suspect the game is to keep this song/dance going until the Palestinians become completely discouraged and frustrated so that they will have to give up and accept their faith as is - live out the rest of their lives as scattered people. I do not think the Palestinians are going to get their wish for a state/country of their own; neither will they be allowed to be part of Israel. I think they have been sold out by everyone including their own Arab brethren. And for them to survive as a people in the present world is somewhat out of the question. The Western world will never accept to help them at the expense of Israel. And the UN cannot do anything about it - period! And that is the SHAME we have to live with.
