I just spoke to a friend in the Israeli army.
No Jews in Gaza = more dead palestinians.

the irony I see is that, after all the deaths and bloodshed in the futile intifadah, the Palestinians are worse off than before.
Any deal that is struck in the next 5-10 years will be 99% similar to 2000 and/or the Geneva Accord.

In other words, nothing will change.
Fair enough, so if we take your statement as true, then the fence that you and I are sitting on either side of is idealism vs. realism. I feel like why should the Palestinians get a deal that basically subjects them to a humiliating sort of oppression (well, a passive one) when even the international community admits that Israel's occupation is illegal; would you be content with living within the confines of your home and subjected to searches and/or arrests every time you left your house?
