A worthwhile effort, Sal, but I think "everything you need to know" is a bit ambitious. As Patrick points out, it has really become too complex for words.

I'd be interested in your views on the Netanyahu's administration's apparent plans to formally annex parts of the West Bank into Israel proper. I think it's clear that whatever remains won't be enough to form a viable Palestinian state. Perhaps the long term hope is that as Israel continues to conclude treaties with Arab neighbors, the Palestinians will, in their increasing isolation, finally give up & go home.

Now, where is "home" in all this?
