    BG, some points on this post of yours as to how to solve the Iranian bomb crisis. First I am sure Ehud Barak values your personal analysis of his intellectual abilities, do you know him personally to have such insight? While I thought Barak was quite a bit of an egotist I also believe he was one of the brightest Israeli Prime Ministers ever, with an incredible grasp of the issues, so I am glad to hear you, yourself, believe you are even smarter than him! The points you raise and solutions you give would make a political scientist proud, but I think you and most of us were never behind the closed doors and had all the information Israeli leaders have had. Unlike you I believe if it was in fact possible, we would have already had peace with the Palestinians. There is too much of a benefit to it to favor war. You neglect to consider that the Iranian regime is driven by an extreme muslim ideology that makes Israel's peace activity with any of its neighbors irrelevant, Israel's very existence is the issue. This has been a solid theme of the regime from Khomeini on down. Iran's stance is simply not an negotiating ploy, and so it will begin...
