    But let me focus on Con #3.

    Unilateralism does not solve conflicts.

    Oh really? Is this a Law of Political Science that I have missed? Or is it rather some mindless concept that seems to serve the argument at hand? Entire entities have been wiped off the map unilaterally and the original conflict forgotten almost entirely.

    Never mind.

    The idea that the occupied must negotiate their freedom from their occupiers with no interference from outside may suit Israel, but it doesn't suit the Palestinians. And I don't see how it suits America's interests.

    First defeat, then deceit, then you're totally in denial (old Egyptian proverb)
