    Maybe, just maybe the American Administration should become cognizant of some basic entrenched positions in the Israeli-Palestinian mess. Israel's positions include - among others the following strategies: 1. Ours is ours - yours is negotiable. 2. God is our real estate agent. 3. Pay attention to what we say - NOT what we do! 4. The USA and Germany are guilty! Ergo, they will pay, pay and pay again. (Actually, the USA is more naive, easier to manipulate. Ergo - they will pay, pay and pay again.) 5. Any government that does not agree with us, is "anti-semitic." 6. Jews that don't agree with us, are "self-hating Jews." 7. Israel is always right! 8. Palestinians don't really exist. 9. Non-jews are tolerated as second class "citizens" if they behave. Otherwise they will remain third class "citizens that have to sit at the rear of the bus! Maybe a more realistic attitude from the Americans could work magic. But let's not kid ourselves! Bush will remain a twit. 5.
