    Where have I heard this expression before? Now the US state Dept is insisting that Israel allow for the transport of terrorists from Gaza to the West Bank on buses, then trucks., notwithstanding again, the Palestinians have violated an agreement (Rafah crossing). I ask, have the Palestinians EVER complied with any agreement with Israel? What is really happening here is that Bush and Condi are squeezing Israel to get brownie points with the Palestinians (Arab world) to compensate for our (US) losses in the Muslim world (Iraq invasion). (The anti-Semites have it both ways again-they claim the Jewish neo-cons started the war, yet Israel is being bullied by the Big 4 to compromise it's security). Israel loses again. Of course Israel could simply say no, no crossings, no bus link and no Palestinian state. But my guess it won't, it needs the US to protect it against Iranian nukes. Sure, give me a break. The US is bogged down in that Iraqi quagmire, and even Afghanistan is beginning to unravel. Russia is furnishing Iran and Syria with ground to air missiles (for defense) and continuing to build those reactors near Tehran (while Iran's leadership is moving fwd to "wipe Israel off the face of the Earth". and/or send it's residents back to Germany, Austria and Poland. Maybe they should also force their small Jewish population into concentration camps. Whose the loser, those countries that will nuked by Israel, beginning with Iran and Syria. As far as the Palestinians, Israel should have a -0- tunnel allowance, one being the end of ALL negotiations.
