I agree w/ Moshe Arens. A mature commentator. Many things have to be resolved, the first of which being the release of Gilad and all the other prisoners in his exchange. Also when will they open the crossings or seal them completely once and for all, so that Egypt will be compelled to develop its relations w/ Gaza as a fellow community of Muslims. Since it is no longer Gush Katif. As for Abbas, who will come out in the exchange, where will they go, etc., is that not his business? Does he not have to oversee or keep track of it? And then, their elections in June. A lot of steps have to be taken. Netanyahu, in his gesture for peace, has pledged to curb settlements for the meanwhile, and has pledged to return his soldier to Israel. This we hope to G-d, is nearing completion.
