"At Taba, Arafat (as despicable as he was) was obviously aware of the time frames. But, therefore, so was Barak. Whats the point?"(Ron) My point is that in Taba the Palestinian Arabs got the best offer they are ever going to get. Had they said yes to that offer, the O--C-C-U-P-A-T-I-O-N would have ended. The two state solution would be a reality by now and you guys ... the eternal critics of Israel could no longer criticize Israel for the O--C-C-U-P-A-T-I-O-N although I am sure you would find some other reasons to blame Israel for ALL the troubles of humanity as a whole. But of course the Palestinian Arabs didn't choose to say yes because they wanted Israel to make even more concessions. Impossible concessions like the so called right of return which is tantamount to national suicide for Israel. That's my point Ron
