    ‘Sharon was about to leave two-thirds of the West Bank’  

    I remember reading about this at the time of disengagement. Gaza was only stage one of the disengagement. Sharon had been brutalized by the Roadmap which was forced upon him. He understood that Israel had to act unilaterally and not simply wait for the pressure. Thus he concocted the disengagement. Ted Belman

    Prime minister was drafting plan for a unilateral pullout when he fell ill, says his former adviser Rafi Eitan, and Netanyahu should tell Obama he’s ready for similar ‘mosaic separation’

    By ELHANAN MILLER, TOI

    US President Barack Obama is due to arrive in Israel for his first presidential visit in March, and speculation abounds surrounding the true intent of his trip. Rafi Eitan, a former high-ranking Mossad official and government minister under Ehud Olmert — banned from the US since the capture of his most famous agent, Jonathan Pollard — says Netanyahu should await the president with a diplomatic proposal of his own: unilateral disengagement from the West Bank.

    By GIONNI QUER, JPOST

    On November 19, the UN Security Council voted on a resolution against Israel for the government’s decision to build in the settlements and east Jerusalem. The resolution was vetoed by the US, but European members of the Security Council, including France, the UK, Germany and Portugal, together with India and South Africa, adopted a joint declaration of condemnation for the building plan approved by Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu. Catherine Ashton, head of EU diplomacy, also condemned the plan to build in the E1 zone, between northeast Jerusalem and west Ma’aleh Adumim.

Regarding the first principle, the main counter argument focuses on the Palestinian will to negotiate borders.
