    Israel should begin final status negotiations immediately with Abu Mazen. EVERYONE knows Israel will not surrender some things: 1.It's own existence as a Jewish-majority state. 2.A real elimination of the threat of terror against it. 3.Borders it can protect itself in. 4.Official recognition But there is no reason to demand these things before rather than during negotiations. On the contrary, Israel should pursue these needs by offering Palestinians real independence and good solutions to their own needs as a "carrot" for making other compromises. The problem with Camp David was not that they were negotiating but the negotiators. Barak and Arafat both fell short of the necessary compromises. But there is every indication in the world that Abbas will go further. Instead of sanctions to build up Palestinian popular opinion against Hamas's hardline stance, how about the existence of a good deal waiting to be implemented? (disarming terror being step one of the deal)
