Despite all the blah,blah to the contrary Israel does not want peace. If we were serious we would stop ALL settlement activity NOW. We are not serious, largely because the "shallow" policians who lead us want to preserve their wretched coalition and to avoid antagonizing the fanatical settlers. Not until the Americans force us will be make real efforts toward peace. But that won't happen so long as Bush is president and, worse, if another Evangelical fanatic is elected.
