    I have always put the imperatives of security before all else. This means no hudnas, no Hamas, unless they renounce their charter and recognize Israeli sovereignty, and no relinquishment of the Golan. I am more than skeptical about the proposed peace conference. I would dearly want peace, but I doubt that it can be achieved under present circumstances. Enormous pressures are being put on Israel by the US, with the idea of legacy in mind, but the sale of twenty billion's worth of weapons to SA, especially of advanced warplanes and satellite guided bombs, does not make me feel in any way reassured. As I have been saying for over a year, Israel is being encircled on all sides. The present government seems overwhelmed by the circumstances and by the very fast pace of events in the region. Most unfortunately, Israel is not as independent in her actions as other sovereign states, but the present government is incined too much to bend to the will of others.
