How about declaring a state of your own?

Last night I heard an idea that has captivated me all day. The Palestinians might declare a state of their own by the time the next US president steps into office. This will receive the immediate recognition of the president of the United States, Goerge W. Bush or Barack Obama, or both, and offer Israel the opportunity to support a nascent state for Palestinians.

Israel's new leadership would be tested, as would its people.


On a personal note, I was honored in Tel Aviv today. More on that another time.

Wonderful idea. Arafat did not want to do it! I wonder why? ==PmR

That would be an awesome idea. To declare their independance only there is a reason they failed to do this before. It would have something to do with taking the responsibility of the problems and withouth funding how will they achieve their goal. Is this possible. The Russians did that in Bosnia, they were not invited to the party and when they showed up what could the other nations do but to accept them. It created a bottle neck and the end result was dysfunction. I just hope whom ever is behind the goal plan has great backing or they need to be looking for supporters because the investment will not come with out the structure first in place.
