Well, I just don't know how Diskin can come to such a conclusion. The only substantive difference between now and 2000, in my opinion, is the security barrier. I have no doubt that the Palestinians will respond as violently as ever to the failure of this summit- a failure which, I believe, is a foregone conclusion. But we won't feel the consequences quite as acutely this time around.
