4. Oh, I don't know... maybe we could round up the Likudists and
opposing extremists from the Palestinian side and give them a five year "vacation" on some totally isolated island.... Let's then see what the good people of both sides might come up with, without the agitators....

"In a statement late Wednesday, Netanyahu reiterated his key demands for a resumption of talks.

He also said all of Jerusalem must remain in Israeli hands."
22. Livni: Netanyahu calling the Israeli-Palestinian conflict insoluble buries chances for peace
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's statement this week that there is no solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict has buried the prospect of a peace deal and normal life in Israel, opposition leader Tzipi Livni said yesterday.
"Your truth has come to light," Livni told the Knesset. Referring to the interview Netanyahu gave to Israeli author Etgar Keret, which was published in Haaretz yesterday, the Kadima chairwoman said: "In a relaxed conversation with an excellent author, for a moment you dropped the pose you adopt on every stage and you spoke your true position - the conflict cannot be resolved."
Livni said Netanyahu had no right to make such a determination.
"Who are you to tell the citizens of Israel that they and their children, and later their children's children, will continue to live by their swords forever? Who are you to bury the chances of a deal and of normal life here, after just a few hours in the room meant for negotiations you didn't conduct?"
