    Hi Swiss, Yes I too admire bold steps, which are the correct steps towards peace, to be justified but somehow such a move of a declaration is similar to the Disengagement of Gaza which was not planned well and also unilateral. The U.S. should continue the insistence on Israel fulfilling its obligation of halting settlements for the duration of negotiating the borders, as the Road Map stipulates. Now if ultimately this government in the near future doesn't comply, then perhaps the U.S. and U.N. could be more insistent. One thing with the Jewish community, there are many opinions or sectors to consider and that's part of the issue. Better to have agreement where there's majority consensus. P.S. I'll be preoccupied with family shortly but will return today.
