What a condescending article. It assumes the palestinians are incapable of negotiating a deal in their interests and that we need to "be easy" on them or they will evaporate. It also assumes that Israel has no legitimate interests to protect and to stand firm on in the negotiations. We do not have to protect our right to holy sites (which they will definitely desecrate and deny us access to, ala Joseph's tomb or the destruction of the Jericho sysagogue). We have no legitimate security interests in the Jordan valley. Eldar learned nothing from our withdrawal from Gaza. Arms in masive quantities will go into the West Bank if we do not assure otherwise (same as Gaza and s. Lbanon where we trusted third parties etc.).No Eldar is so obsessed with his TRUTH that he has 0 understanding that other Israelis and jews may have interests he does not care a thing about but we elected a government to protect those interests. His colleagues on the left keep losing elecions and demanding that their policy be implemented. I suggest he take a sabatical and take some courses in democratic principles and processes.
