    Regarding the Gran Mufti and his grandchildren. Well, old chap, I happen to know one of his grandchildren. A businessman par excellence, in fact a good friend. He is more realistic than many and has dedicated his time, together with his family to a flourishing export business. When discussing politics, he firmly believes that only through dialogue and firm commitments by both parties will the true peace between two peoples be possible. The only time, he feels that peace was closely attainable was during the tenure of PM Rabin. However, Mr.Arafat blew the deal, mainly due to pressure from Damascus and other parties in the Arab World. Today, peace is so far off the compass, especially with the growing right wing movement that few if any believe in simply kick starting such an endeavor. However, all agree that PM Netanyahu is unbendable and resolute and together with DM Barak, they together could well initiate the first steps, only if Mr.Abbas is really willing to walk the walk. G·day.
