Even the Clinton-Barak plan at Camp David II, which went way too far in terms of concessions, proposed to retain most of the major West Bank settlement blocs. What makes this significant is the official acknowledgement of the United States that the EU/UN approach to the peace process is a failure and bankrupt in every possible way. It is also signaling to the Palestinians that their campaign of racist mass slaughter has gained them nothing and cost them much. Both very, very encouraging developments.
