Coming Soon: Palestine, the State

AP accuses Israel of "gobbling up" land, the reason, supposedly, why Palestinians are said to be weighing "other options" to "peace talks."

You don't have to be an oracle to see what's unfolding: the Abbas faction is getting set to declare statehood unillaterally (because, really, who wants or needs to haggle with Jews, especially when most of the world is on your side anyway?), and AP along with other media are helping prepare us for that eventuality. (One needn't be prescient to predict the coming spin: "What choice did Palestinians have, given that rapacious, land-grubbing Jewry begrudged them of--and were "gobbling" up--all their land?")
