This conflict is older than the hills. The Pals want everything giving up nothing. That there are 2 fronts, Hamas and fatah who murder one another, who shall Israel deal with? The demands from the Pals are impossible and Israel has given far more than any Pal in any areement. Israel becomes smaller and smaller while the Pals keep their people in squalor and poverty only to make more demands and blame Israel. Hamas is building a huge arsenal and Israel will have to fight again, and again for her very survival. Advice? Stall 'til Bush and gang are gone, then, stall some more. Take a page from the Arafat playbook. Olmert will be gone too. The US and Israel will have new elected leaders, so it's important to be sure beforehand that they will NOT give more of Israels land to terrorists. The Pals need new elections as well if they want progress. This stallmate is meant for some time to rethink this proposal. IT WONT WORK.
