#1 In a war somebody wins and somebody loses. The Palestinians are gonna lose.
In another fifty years they will be just another footnote. And In a hundred years they won't even be that. Take it all, give nothing back.
Settlements work. That is why the Palestinians hate and fear them. They work. And if the Palestinians fight we simply break their fingers and take it anyway.
If Hamas wants to hang in there, we have an excuse to do whatever it takes to castrate and smother them. There is no question about who is going to win. The Palestinians are gonna lose. Two and two is four and the sky is blue.
You don't like that? Tell it to the capitals of North and South Dakota. Tell it to the Osage and the Ponca and the Yankton Sioux Hell, tell it to the Arikara and the Comanche, and the Cheyenne. And tell the Palestinians to go stand in that line and bend over. There IS no nice way.

#2 The equivalent of the settlements worked in the US. First the Jamestown Settlement, and on and on. Worked out ok for many who could adapt and merge with the settlers, to the point where it is now beneficial to fake native roots, like Sen. Warren (didn't work at all for the many who couldn't or wouldn't adapt.) And our settlers were FAR less civilized than today's Israelis.

#7 PM Benji may have reasons ...
* MEMRI > [Al-Sharq = Ibrahim Aal Majari] SAUDI COLUMNIST: TIME TO ANNEX GAZA TO EGYPT.
* WAFF > THE ISLAMIC REPUBLIC OF EGYPT.
As per MEMRI TV, senior Egyptian Judge calls for implementation of Sharia law in Egypt includ as per strictly defined, strictly enforced Islamic punishments, claims US-WEST, ETC. GOVTS + MEDIAS DOES NOT UNDERSTAND THE BENEVOLENCE BEHIND ISLMAIC LAW.
