Subject: A viable Palestinian state.

In your program today, Ed Morgan,of Canadian Jewish Congress, states there is adequate land for the Palestinians in the Barak offer of 40% of the West Bank. The West Bank,including East Jerusalem, and Gaza constitute a mere 22% of historic Palestine, the land of the Palestinian people who still legally own 94% of the entire land of Palestine.
There was little mention of the fact that the Israeli occupation, of the West Bank,including East Jerusalem, and Gaza, is illegal and has been allowed to stand for over 35 years in defiance of international law and repeated Security Council resolutions. For any peace to be secured for Israelis and Palestinians, there must be complete Israeli withdrwal from these territories and full compliance with UN resolutions, including the Right of Return for the Palestinian refugees who were systematically expelled and ethnically cleansed from their homeland.
