13. Good idea, very reasonable and appropriate...
...but as some of us realize (and I know you do too) getting the cowards in Congress to actually do the right thing is a political minefield. Any fair-minded observer of Israeli methods of taking land from Palestinians would call it criminal. The US government is so well manipulated by right-wing Israeli interests that the Netanyahus and all the other dishonest Israeli "patriots" will simply continue to defy even Barack Obama. A two-state solution cannot happen without a contiguous territory existing between Gaza and the West Bank. The Israeli government will never redraw boundaries even close to those of 1967. The IDF would have to forcibly dislodge the settlers, and it would be very ugly. Still, that's exactly what needs to happen. Unless Obama and Congress get very, very tough will the Likudniks, there will never be a Palestine.
