    Doubletalk is universal political language used by all players. But the question is who is a player, and who is a kibitzer. The more purist ideologues on right and left will continue to write their op-eds and the e-mail posters post. Meanwhile the supposed devils Bush, Olmert and Abbas will continue to put their stamps upon events demonstrating the impotency of the media and the kibitzers. The game hasn't changed since 1967. Measure for measure and tit for tat. Burying the Hatchet - Sulha -could well bring complete withdrawal save for Jerusalem where Jewish sensibilities would be taken into account in a compromise where Arab Jerusalem is given its due too. That is if the Arabs want to make peace with the Jews. If this does not happen, the ideologues who think that time favors the Arabs and Muslims are mistaken. We will soon know what the Arabs think.
