What if the 'Palestinians' just leave? (Video)

Israel Television reported earlier this week that one in every three 'Palestinians' would like to move abroad. Here's that report:

It would be wonderful if the 'Palestinians' would just up and leave. Unfortunately, the Arab governments will do everything in their power to prevent it - and the Olmert-Barak-Livni junta may work to prevent it too.

Carl - you're last comment is interesting. 350,000 Arabs left Gaza temporarily. So there's evidence that with the right incentives, hundreds of thousands of Arabs could be persuaded to pack up and leave for better lives elsewhere.

Unfortunately its an approach the Olmert-Barak-Livni government, wedded to a two state formula that has no chance of ever getting off the ground has no interest in pursuing. Granted the open border of Hamas jihadstan with Egypt presents Israel with a more dangerous situation but exists anyway. Its also an opportunity for Israel to shake off an Arab demographic headache.

The problem is Israel doesn't have a government far-sighted enough to take advantage of the opportunity to persuade the Arabs to leave peacefully.
