    Had sadat lived, it's unlikely that he would have stood silently by as Mubarak did while Egyptian resentment steadily grew towards Israel in the 'cold peace' that resulted. With Mubarak no longer there to keep a lid on that antagonism, Israel is faced with a monster of its OWN creation! And as a note of interest, the Arab peace initiative was contingent largely on an equitable resolving of the Palestinian issue - most likely - to prevent a similar popular antagonism towards Israel from festering among Arab populations and preventing the comprehensive and cooperative peace it envisioned. The big clue that Israel is missing - or ignoring - is that as long as it maintains its occupation of Palestinian territory, and the settlements that encroach upon it, there will be no REAL peace with its neighbors; not now, not tomorrow, not ever! The best that it can muster will be a piece of paper bwtween governments...and Egypt is a shining example of how THAT will fare over the long term. Bottom line is that Israel will come to know "real" peace with its neighbors ONLY when it makes peace with the 'people' of those countries - something that will never happen if it continues its policy of occupation and oppression.
