Thank you for the kind words, Libera_me!

My focus is on how the people are treated, rather than on the land that is retained. As far as I am concerned, Israel can keep the entire West Bank and Gaza... but she would then be morally obligated to give everyone who is living within those borders full citizenship rights (including the right to move freely -- people have been trapped within the Gaza refugee camps for long enough), and she clearly is not willing to do that. So, she needs to retreat to whatever borders within which she is willing to grant full citizenship rights to all, and allow the rest to become independent Palestine.

As a practical matter, negotiating a mutually agreeable border with the Palestinians could lead to a broader peace treaty and remove an issue from the table that the Islamic fundamentalists would otherwise continue to use to foment further hatred of Israel.
