then so is peace; isn't it? What he's asking is that Israel stop its activities in areas that are destined to be part of the Palestinian state. If it's impossible for Israel to do that, then it's clearly not interested in peace, and there'll be no two state solution, but rather one state with two people. Now days, Israel cries foul when it's policies are compared to apartheid, but what's it going to say when there's absolutely no doubt? And what's it going to do when world responds like it did to S. Africa? The biggest fear of our government is an imposed settlement, yet it's everything it possibly can to insure that the international community does exactly that.
