I find Danny Wakil’s letter (31 July) to be both specious and disingenuous.
How does he expect cooperation from the Palestinians when they are constantly provoked and confronted by the Israeli government? Just yesterday (August 1) they announced the establishment of thousands of new Jewish homes on Palestinian territory.
A short time ago I saw an interview with Tzipi Livni, who’s supposed to hold left-wing views on the subject; her solution to the problem was to return the West Bank to the Palestinians without abandoning the illegal Jewish settlements. As the majority of Jewish settlements seem to be built on strategic high places the surrounding Palestinians would still effectively be under Jewish control.
