80. Well stated, Sir
The attempt to avoid a solution to the I/P conflict by suggesting that Jordan is the Palestinian state and that the West Bank and Gaza are properly part of Israel is scandalous. Jordan is ruled by a Hashemite king and Egypt is no more Palestinian than Argentina is Italian.

It is my view that:
  1. Israel exists and has the right to exist;
  2. Israel's borders are defined by the 1949 armistice;
  3. The West Bank and Gaza belong to the Palestinian people; and
  4. While Israel's position in the 1967 war was defensive, she has no right to permently claim land seized during that war; therfore
  5. Israel and Palestine, a de facto state encompassing the West Bank and Gaza, must negotiate a peace agreement whereby Palestine agrees to peace with her neighbor and Israel withdraws her military forces from Palestinian land.
