A Sea Change
Miss Rice said a Palestinian state - recognised by Israel - was "within our grasp", but it must be viable and contiguous with enough land to function properly. [BBC]
Contiguous? Did she say, contiguous? You mean, not a wormy patch of land with tunnels and overpasses, criss-crossed by barriers and checkpoints? You mean, Sharon on a short leash? You mean, no IDF target practice in playgrounds? No bank robberies by IDF? No burning of records and property deeds? No targeted assassinations, too? No Iron Fist operations in Gaza?
What accounts for the flip-flop? Any thoughts?
