    That's twice this man has made sensible comments on Palestinian affairs. His forst was on the need to encourage Palestinian Israelis to integrate into Isrtaeli society both socially and economicially. This is the second. There arelimits to our power and Diskin understands that better than those whose epertise seems to be only in rhetoric and preserving their own status quo. We cannot continue in occupation and we cannot continue to divide the Palestinians. Their predicament after this deal is at least as big as ours was after 1948. What we want is to secure our future and it isn't in remaining as occupiers. We are strong enough to make a deal with the Palestinians and that means with all of them. We do not make peace with our friends but with our enemies. Hamas is our enemy and we cannot destroy them, much as we'd like to, so we have to reach an accomodation with them in order to secure our selves.
