Israel says no to Obama again

The Hebrew daily Yisrael HaYom reported on Wednesday that the Netanyahu government said no to a demand by the Obama administration that it commit to a mass expulsion of Jews from Judea and Samaria and a 'Palestinian state' within two years.
The Netanyahu administration has rejected a U.S. Middle East peace plan that calls for Israeli willingness to carry out a massive withdrawal from Judea and Samaria, Israel HaYom reported Wednesday. According to the plan, a summit would be held in another month based on the withdrawal and an Israeli commitment to establish a Palestinian Authority (PA) state within two years.

Intensive final status talks between Israel and the PA were to be opened after the summit.
Two words: Without preconditions.

It is not going to happen. The IDF simply doesn't have the manpower to uproot half a million revanants. And the cost involved would bankrupt Israel. Above all, in the post-Goldstone Era, Israel is not going to make ANY territorial concessions, knowing the world will not uphold its right of self-defense. The idea of a Palestinian state happening in the next two years is flapdoodle.

The only one still entertaining the fantasy is Obama and Israel turned him down.

Not only will it cost billions (us never gave us the 2 for gaza) but there are literally 1000's of IDF soldiers living there. Your going to ask them to "Rip" their Families out from their roots? I agree with Norman too. The Goldstone report is going to have a long term reverse effect. Again the arabs and arabs lovers have shot themselves in the foot
