Be clear: Sharon is not "Peace Now", so don't expect him to be. Sharon's plan is not to get out of the territories, it is to get out of the places in the territories that aren't worth staying in, and strengthen the Israeli presence in those places that *are* worth staying in. We are *not* leaving Ariel. Or Gush Etzion. Or Maale Adumim. Or the settlements around Modiin. Or any of the settlements abutting or close to the Green Line. Or, I hope, the Jordan Valley (except for Jericho), since almost no Palestinians live there anyway. Just as Israelis are going to have to realize we can't keep everything, the Palestinians are going to have to realize that if they want to reach a settlement, and get on with life already, they're going to have to accept reality and recognize that they aren't going to get it all.
