    Personally, I think Yossi Beilin is spot on. And as for the "generous" offer of Barak to Arafat for the best deal the Arabs would ever get, does not mean the offer was just. It was not. It was: "this is what we are offering. Take it or leave it. Just know that we control your destiny." Bush is a weakling and will capitulate to Sharon's demands. Bush will not confront the AIPAC lobby since he knows this would be a political disaster, for him. Beilin's solution to this seemingly intractable problem is unattainable simply because Israel has no intention of implementing it. What one should notice in the bulk of these responses is how very angry they are. Anger is what stands out over and over again. Attacks are made on Beilin and any peacemaker, but nothing is offered in its place except lets continue the seige mentality, the thinking that Israel can only survive through perpetuating hatred of the other. It is not the ideas of Beilin that have brought bloodshed to Israel but the anger and intransigence of an Israeli public that elected Sharon.
