The West Bank today is an ugly quilt of high walls, Israeli checkpoints, “legal” and “illegal” Jewish settlements, Arab villages, Jewish roads that only Israeli settlers use, Arab roads and roadblocks.
There is no road that only Jews use.
And there cannot be an "illegal" Jewish "settlement". It may be unlicensed or unauthorized but there is nothing "illegal" about a Jew living in his homeland.
But, ever optimistic, I scoured his piece and found these positive items:-
But Israel cannot cede control over any part of the West Bank without being assured that someone credible is in charge.
I seriously doubt that the parties will reach an agreement, let alone have the energy to implement it.
When you cheat and have war after peace, trust vanishes for a long time.
the Israeli public right now feels no sense of urgency, especially with the Israeli economy booming. The West Bank behind the wall might as well be in Afghanistan.
Israel cannot cede control over any part of the West Bank without being assured that someone credible is in charge. Rockets from Gaza land on the remote Israeli town of Sderot. Rockets from the West Bank could hit, and close, Israel’s international airport. That is an intolerable risk.
Most of the rest is illogical and unsupportable.
