VH: "the basis of all agreements that have meaning is tht both sides have something to exchange ! the arabs have nothing to exchange ! period !" Peace. Recognition. Normalization. Trade in the region. Regonal Cooperation. Regional Security. International acceptance. All that comes to Israel, and can only come to Israel via the Arabs signing a piece of paper that says: "We are happy now. We no longer have any outstanding issues between us and the State of Israel. We can all just get on with our own lives now, because there is no reason for anyone to keep picking on Israel any more." That's what the Arabs are offering, Victor. Which all looks pretty desirable to me but, then again, I'm not a war-loving, hate-mongering, land-grabbing, racist loonie. Not like some people I've come across......
