    A few points: a) The Oslo agreemnt was foisted on Israel illegally, by Labour when in opposition - and Rabin claimed it was reversible if terror continued - which it did. b) Any political party in a democracy has the right to disagree and oppose the views of another party, and whenin government they do not have to follow with failed policies. Eg, we have a new government in UK, and they no longer follow the policies of the previous one. c) Hebron agreement - what is dishonest about getting security backing in exchange for that agreemnt? The land for peace formula was based on security. d) A contract can be voided by either side, so Oslo has been voided - it is a matter of debate who is responsible. Hebron did not void Oslo, but was a surrender of land which was purchased by Abraham. This in itself was an illegal act, and not something that can be imposed onthe Jewish nation by a PM of Israel. e) Obama did not recognise the Bush agrements on natural growth of jewish settlements in Judea and Samaria. If the USA reneges on an agreemnt, then Israel has to revise it's contractual position.
