The article is unduly harsh. Because of Rabin, the inevitability of an Israel-Palestine settlement began to be seriously discussed. Please keep in mind that before Rabin, no American President ever used the word "Palestine." (Hillary Clinton was reviled for talking about a place called Palestine.) Now President Bush advocates a Palestinian state (and he means West of the Jordan River, sorry Hebronites). Unfortunately, while American involvement will be necessary, our current administration is too fixated on sloganeering. Please see Condi Rice's comments in Haaretz about Hamas disarming. Good idea. They should disarm. But then she states that the IRA disarmed after 1998 (no photos taken) and erroneously claims that Afghan warlords are not participating in the Afghan electoral process. In fact, the warlords have co-opted the electoral process.
