Daniel - how can you say: "I don't know anything about the village of Bil'in" and refer to it as "This Bil'in thing"??? I find it very hard to believe that you don't know anything about it when - yesterday and today - Haaretz has had quite prominent articles about the village of Bil'in losing approximately half of its land to the apartheid wall. In other words, israel is taking for itself half of the village's land. This land theft does not take the Palestinians and Israelis closer to peace, whether that peace would take the form of the Geneva Accord or some other shape; it takes both parties further from peace. Your refusal to acknowledge - it seems that you have not even bothered to read the articles about "this Bil'in thing" - the expropriation, theft, call it what you like, of Palestinian land makes me doubt whether you are serious when you talk of any sort of peace. Stealing land and the apartheid wall are not diversions. It is happening as I write this. But to you it's simply not happening.
