Could one word, 'contiguous,' mean progress in the Middle East?

It was a key word in Erin Burnett's exclusive interview with Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu: contiguous. Pressed by Burnett on the willingness of Israel to accept not just a Palestinian state, but a contiguous one, Netanyahu confirmed "no Swiss cheese." That moment did not escape notice by newspapers in the region, who said it was an important moment that could potentially hint at a breakthrough.

    Well – It takes'em to go after the questions no one else will go after directly. And you are direct! very nicely done! You
    certainly are garnering some well deserved attention from foreign media! Opening true dialogue is key. But one great
    question is what will it cost the U.S? The real thing will be for BEBE to mention 'Contiguous', 'Sovereign Palistinian State',
    and 'East Jerusalem' in the same sentence. Keep Punchin!
