With the PA in tatters, there is a real question of there not being a viable negotiating partner. This enables a do-nothing or business as usual attitude on the part of the Israeli government who continue to build settlements as quickly as possible before peace negotiations force them to stop. This policy is plain for all to see. Accept/reject the Goldstone report, the grapic pictorial images on the TV nightly cannot be so easily denied as well as the mounting human tragedy that is festering in Gaza. Efforts to relieve human suffering there while bypassing the Hamas would do much to ease what will become a new time bomb. Israel's security is paramount, and intellegent Jews are frightened that failure to come to terms with the population under their thumbs will implode tragically on them in the too near future .
