Peace requires to have two strong leaders on both side, an Israeli prime minister who can say no to settlements in the occupied territories and a strong Palestinian president that can make concessions on East Jerusalem to become International and refugees to go back to the Palestinian state. On Rabin was strong enough to make these concessions and he got assassinated, I think the Israeli people are not ready for peace yet, therefore they should be ready for the other alternative which is war. so think about it carefully before you say no to settlements and make a good gesture to end the settlements in the West Bank.
