Holding the West Bank

“Prime Minister Ariel Sharon is planning further unilateral Israeli withdrawals to follow the pullout from the Gaza Strip if he fails to find a political settlement with the Palestinians, aides said.”

“A source close to Sharon said that new unilateral moves – which reportedly could see Israel hold on to over 20 percent of the West Bank – would allow the country to sidestep international pressure over its future borders with a Palestinian state.”

And the West wonders if the Palestinians are serious about peace?
