    ah.. so he is Arab. Thank you for pointing that out. It explains quite a bit to me. My rebuttal: What ben Ish could say. 1) This conflict is a highly charged, highly emotional, and extremely complex issue. There are political, economic, geographic, demographic, idiological, and religious implications, -just to name a few- 2) ANY competent person who deals with complex technical issues as a professional, understands that the basis for progress lies in separating issues. One simply does not approach a complex problem without separating out as many issues as possible. Prioritize one at a time, usually the least complex or smallest problem first. 3) Therefore, if one is to approach this conflict with a sincere desire towards resolution, then it must begin by separating contentions, and dealing with one item at a time. Any party that says "We have 10 items on the table that need to be resolved, and you must agree to all" is one of either two things: disingenous OR incompetent.
