This may be a "most fundamental reality" to Israelis, but Americans have no idea what you are talking about! Mirkaz Harave and the Khanists... sounds like a Star Trek episode! Who the hell are they?? If all this plot within a plot has any serious bearing on the Israeli-Palestinian situation, why not let us know what it is, instead of berating people for not understanding something (someone?) they've never heard of. And I seriously believe that if I've never heard of it - you can bet George Bush has never heard of it! You guys need a new plan; this one may be working (refusing to negotiate), but you're now down to pissing off your last friend. Be warned.
