Today on Fresh Air, Thomas Friedman explained that the Palestinians should make sure to pump up some economic development in the areas where Israel is pulling out. Then the Israelis will like having prosperous neighbors and they might be encouraged to pull out of other areas. Isn't that nice?

"Most of the people living on [Earth] were unhappy for pretty much of the time. Many solutions were suggested for this problem, but most of these were largely concerned with the movements of small, green pieces of paper, which is odd, because on the whole, it wasn't the small, green pieces of paper which were unhappy." - Douglas Noel Adams, page one of the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy.

Friedman's suggestion is kind of like that, only in this situation you could say, "it wasn't the small, green pieces of paper under military occupation."
