Whatever we may think of the ambiguities around Palestinian statehood, the issue is just not going away.  The Olso process failed.  it did not make the problem go away.  Palestinians were undoubtedly put off the scent for a while.  But it was temporary. How could it be otherwise?

The question of Palestine has been represented as a question for far too long.  The hallucinations and threats of Israel have to put aside.  We have been moved by Zionist hysteria for far too long.  This is understandable in some ways.  Europe has treated the Jewish people appallingly.  No other people have been subject to similar treatment.  This we can never forget.

Settlements and the Palestinians right to self-determination now cannot be waived aside …
