Q. Do you know when Israel will resume the giving away of land to Palestinians?
A. Israeli Prime Minister Olmert has said that upon cessation of the war with Lebanon, he would resume his plans to dismantle settlements in the West Bank and cede land to the Palestinians. But there is so much dissatisfaction with his handling of both the war and the cease fire right now that his government may not survive it, so he’s recently said that his plan for giving up parts of the West Bank has been put on hold. We’ll have to wait and see if he picks up the West Bank issue again.
