What land swaps?

Ever since Obama mentioned "land swaps" at AIPAC a few years ago, it is considered a given fact that there will be such land swaps. It was a facile concession to the pro-Palestinian crowd, but no one bothered to check if there actually are such lands to be swapped. Turns out there aren't. Oops. And that's in addition to the fact that to impose such a demand on Israel is akin to asking the victim of an aggression to reward its aggressor for not being the aggressor any more! A classical case of blackmail. Such a swap has never happened in history before, and yet it is demanded of Israel! What kind of madness is that? There will be no progress as long as the Palestinians keep living in their parallel universe of unrealistic demands, a bizarre dimension in which they behave as if they were the victors instead of the defeated aggressors. The US administration would be much better inspired to read them the riot act and tell them that they are in no position to make demands any more. They should consider themselves lucky to be dealing with the israelis rather than, say, the Syrians or the Russians (hint: there would be no negotiations of any sort with these guys) and walk away with what Israel is willing to give them. Otherwise, they will continue forever on their self-imposed road to perdition. Fine. Let it be their choice.

    A fascinating discussion is definitely worth comment. I do believe that you need to write more on this topic, it may not be a taboo subject but typically people do not talk about such issues. To the next! Best wishes!!

    Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering if you knew of any widgets I could add to my blog that automatically tweet my newest twitter updates. I've been looking for a plug-in like this for quite some time and was hoping maybe you would have some experience with something like this. Please let me know if you run into anything. I truly enjoy reading your blog and I look forward to your new updates.

    Hello! Quick question that's totally off topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My site looks weird when viewing from my iphone. I'm trying to find a template or plugin that might be able to resolve this problem. If you have any recommendations, please share. Appreciate it!

    First of all I want to say great blog! I had a quick question that I'd like to ask if you don't mind. I was interested to know how you center yourself and clear your thoughts prior to writing. I've had a tough time clearing my thoughts in getting my ideas out. I truly do enjoy writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are generally wasted simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any ideas or tips? Many thanks!

    Hey there just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The words in your post seem to be running off the screen in Chrome. I'm not sure if this is a formatting issue or something to do with browser compatibility but I figured I'd post to let you know. The design and style look great though! Hope you get the issue resolved soon. Thanks
