[Read the whole article, this is satirical]. But all of a sudden, in the middle of all these atrocities, there seems to be a ray of light. The term "Palestinian State" is being de-tabooed.

vision" (why didnít they tell us before?), King Abdallah of Jordan says the Arab world should integrate Israel in return for Palestinian state, and even Chairman Arafat himself airs his threats to declare a state. What a harmony, what a consensus! One almost wonders what the Middle East conflict was all about, if it can be solved by such a simple declaration.
