    Read the tenor of the contributions submitted on this and other HaAretz comment sites. This is the ?dialogue? of the various proponents of one side or another. At his point, we do not need dialogue --- we need separation. Let each of us go our own ways?.let there be a Palestinian entity ?call it a State or an authority or whatever ? but let it be solely responsible for its own people and its own economy. Let it provide its own electricity, its own water, its own infrastructure and its own currency. Let it be totally divorced from any dependency on Israel?for good or for bad. If it needs help (and it will) let it obtain assistance from the other Arab countries. Let the Palestinians develop their own economy and objective educational systems. Let them control their own security. When they will have developed a system that will enable them to be responsible for their own future? at that time, let us look at each other (as is said in Hebrew) at the same height. Let us then look into each other?s eyes and respect the peace that we both deserve. Let us then talk with each other instead of at each other. Otherwise, we will continue to have the same ?dialogue? that appears on the HaAretz website day after day. Let us separate today so that we can come together tomorrow!!!!
