Cal Thomas writes that

President Bush may declare as early as this week an end to the Iraq war, but he appears ready to press ahead with the “road map” to establish a Palestinian state that can only jeopardize the continued existence of Israel.

I will admit that I am not fully-versed in the “road map” to this point. However, I think it is pragmatic reality that Palestinian state is going to have to be declared if there is to be any hope of approaching even a semi-solution to this ongoing problem.

The perfect is the enemy of the good in many cases, and clearly there is never going to be perfection in this situation, so incremental steps are going to have to be taken. And while I support Israel’s right to exist, and do see them as the injured party in many ways, they have been far from guilt-free in this situation.

Further, I do not see a Palestinian state as threatening the actual existence of Israel–indeed, it would seem that having a state-to-state relationship would be easier to manage than the current morass.
