On to the '48 territories'

As Tel Aviv police sat silently, 'Palestinian' flags replaced Israeli flags in the mostly Arab neighborhood of Yaffo (Jaffa) in south Tel Aviv.
Walla! reported the flags had been waving at the site for several hours, and that despite a number of requests to Tel Aviv police, officers or Municipality workers had not rushed to take them down.
The flags were put up after Israeli flags at the site were removed; the whereabouts of those flags and the perpetrators of the switch remain unknown.
Yafo is home to large numbers of Arab citizens of Israel; in 2011 over 1,000 local Arabs, mostly residents of the Israeli city, protested Israel's existence on "Nakba (catastrophe) Day."
The placement of the flags implies with it a claim of PA rule over the region, which is clearly not over the 1949 Armistice lines being used as a basis of peace talks in opposition to the original intent of the ceasefire lines.
Even if by some miracle we reached an agreement with the 'Palestinians,'  I doubt that anyone whose name isn't John FN Kerry believes that the conflict would actually be over.
