My following comments relate to the statement released by the U.S. State Department on behalf of the "Quartet".

The Quartet reiterates its commitment

to a two-state solution and to Israeli withdrawal from Gaza and parts of the West Bank as a way to re-energize the peace plan, known as the road map. The statement said the goal is a permanent peace and an end to the Israeli occupation that began in 1967.


the future Palestinian state must be economically viable and geographically contiguous and that no party should do anything to prejudge the final status issues of the future peace settlement.

So, one the one hand, only "parts of the West Bank" need by yielded.

But, on the other hand, there must be an "end of occupation that began in 1967".

So, does that not include all of the territories in dispute in Judea and Samaria?

And, on the third hand, that supposed future Palestinian state must be "contiguous".

So, is there total territorial integrity for the Arabs or not?


I am.
