"I hope they will cut the long story short and start telling the Israeli people that the road to peace is to end the occupation and withdraw," Erekat said.</i> What does he mean by "end the occupation and withdraw" ? Does he mean that Israel give up it's country and hand it over to Palestine? What would happen to Israelis then? I don't know much about politics in this region, but I think this is a pretty awesome offer. I don't know if it's an official offer from Israel, but it sure sounds like something Palestinians should give serious consideration to AND accept.
