Although I disagree with parts of this article (maybe like Sharon's plan, there are parts of the article that everyone can disagree with), the cruz is true. Israel is making a bold move and trying to chart on a path towards peace. As usual, while the Palestinians are not missing opportunities to miss opportunities, Israel makes a bold move toward peace. Of course the haters will say that it's not enough or it's a trick, as if Israel can just wave a magic wand and make total peace in a two-party conflict by herself. But impartial observers can see who wants peace and who doesn't. Just read Khalid's post to see the same old tired canards. Sad.
