"Extremists the likes of Benny Elon believe the
solution lies in "encouraging" Palestinians to
relinquish all of the territories or, at the
very least, the dream of a Palestinian state.
More moderate rightists, such as Ehud Olmert,
propose that the Jews relinquish a small
portion of the lands of Judea and Samaria,
based on a formula of "maximum land, minimum
Arabs." As far as they are concerned, the
Palestinians can term the enclaves that remain
under their control "a state." They will be
first in line to recognize it."

"If Israel is tempted to establish Bantustan for
the residents of the territories, and to put
off a resolution to the problem of the
Palestinian diaspora for better days, the
residents of Israel and the Jewish Diaspora can
expect worse ones to come."
