    Unfortunately Mr. Arens never learnt anything, the hard way or otherwise. Too many yoing Israelis died in Lebanon over the years of our futile occupation there, to satisfy the ravings of Arens and his ilk. Too many young soldiers died defending the misguided settlers in Gaza, again planted there by Arens and his delusional colleagues. The only thing that I have learnt over the past few decades in the Middle East is that we need a clear separation of populations. The fact that Arens is in complete denial about is that ever since the withdrawal from Lebanon the northern border is mostly quiet. The last time the Hezbollah tried something stupid they paid a heavy price, and once again things are quiet. We can reach this status quo on the Palestinian front as well, as long as Mr Arens is not making the decisions.... . After all, the last time Arens & Co. were making decisions we started out on an experiment of regime change in Lebanon- an experiment undoubtedly worthy of leaders from Chelm.
