    ...that the notion "the arabs seem ready to accept it", is a little bit problematic. Ask Mashaal and you´ll get a different answer. And I´m sure you know that he is a powerful palestinian. And along the same line - you get different answers in Israel too, you know. Feiglin doesn´t agree with Beilin, as an example. But a majority in Israel wants negotiations and compromises. The thing that you label as "the basic deal" still contains a large number of details, both regarding content and when it comes to such things as periods of implementation. And much more, of course. That´s why there will be long and tedious negotiations. There´s nothing easy and simple with "minor land swaps". It is complicated. Arrangements for ensuring security is another difficult topic. And so on and so forth. And the whole thing is based on this concept: there can´t be an imposed solution. The only way that could work is direct and bilateral negotiations. You are entitled to your opinion, Sir, but I think that the current tactics of Abbas and Fayyad is a huge mistake. There is no substitute to "negotiating-now-with-Israel". Well, that´s all I got, for now. Shalom.
