Michael, Pressure can indeed help when no essential interests of the country which is pressured are involved. It is not possible to pressure the Palestinians to give up what they call ther "right of return" which means resettleing the refugees in Israel rather then any where else in the world. They have to decide that on their own and the more pressure the more they will resist. It is hard to imagine applying on them more pressure then is being applied to the Palesitnians in the Gaza strip. As far as Israel is concerned, no pressure is needed for a solution which will not involve the "right of return" and will not compromise Israrel's security and existance. So I cannot see pressure contributing to peace. I believe that if the "right of return" issue is resolved the rest can be resolved as well.
