on your first point you are spot on America will give up Israel for its own gain which until now has not been worth it. what price will Lebanon and Syria have to pay. Does it include taking har dov(sheba farms) and the Golan and giving nothing in return while portraying a fake peace until the next war. Jordan fears that the Palestinians and Al Queda will revolt in their country. The Palestinians support Iran and are funded by them. Saudi Arabia is run by Wahabi Islam and they teach that anyone with a different belief whether Jew, Muslim or Christian must follow them or die. This Saudi plan is from 5 years ago (and has been on the table long before that) before Iran was considered a threat so your logic makes no sense. Olmert will risk this agreement for power giving into our enemies with near certainty that once the land is given back a war will begin to finish us off. They had all the land they ask for in 1967 but attacked us anyways does this not tell you everything.
