#1 A "fatal blow" to a non-existent "hope for peace".
That's a good trick.

#2 Fuck you moon-boy. The Palestinians are the biggest fatal blow to your two-state solution. Or any solution that doesn't involve napalming the West Bank and bouncing the rubble after.

#4 OTOH compare wid TOPIX > UN CHIEF ACCUSES SYRIA OF VIOLATING  CEASEFIRE AGREEMENT WID ISRAEL, URGES END TO ALL FIRINGS.
As for the Paleos, technically speaking EGYPT claims Gaza as its sovereign territory - AFAIK its only allowing the Paleos to stay there as "guests" of the Egyptian Govt-State. DITTO AS PER JORDAN + WEST BANK, ALBEIT ISRAEL PROCLAIMS THE WEST BANK AS "DISPUTED" TERRITORY.
Jordan does have a very large Paleo population, a fact which the ruling Hashemites are always keen to notice - read, sensitive.
All things equal, I would argue that Israel's contruction on the WB is actually good for the Paleo's interests, as both Egypt + Jordan show no sign of giving up Gaza or WB to the Paleos as the latter's own sovereign land.
