I hope that you are right in your reading of the situation and that sufficient numbers of Palestinians are interested enough in peace for it to happen. The IDF is 'there' for the protection of Israel and Israelis as the PA security men should be 'there' for the protection of your people. I join you in your wish for a positive outcome from the diplomatic activity. I must say that the Palestinians writing to Haaretz recently have shown a much less angry face than in the past and are measurably more pro-peace and reconciliation than the knee-jerk anti Israelis from abroad, who show how their hatred of Jews in general and Israelis in particular overrules any consideration of the welfare of the area.
