    Very interesting to hear palestinian comments on israeli politicians, since the only way that palestinians can acheive "victory" within the current generation is to understand and manipulate israeli politics. Obviously, most palestinians don't think so and dream of winning by force of arms or by getting more of the world to oppose Israel, but I would be amazed if either method will accomplish much in your or my lifetimes. On the other hand, israeli politics is definitely exploitable, with a slow drift to the left until violence breaks out, followed by reset to the right. Only hope for palestinians is to resist Sharon-type provocations and get enough israeli leftists elected that they start to dimantle the wall, the settlements, the Shin Bet infrastructure,etc, whereupon the diehard israeli rightists will go beserk and start killing the israeli doves (like Rabin for example), and civil war breaks out with the palestinians left to pick up the pieces.
