    "Israel must choose between peace and continuation of settlements ". Most of your writers seem to be of like mind gathered on this website and decide to chew same ol same ol tired lines in unison. Choice between Peace or settlements hmm silly question but Not an easy choice when taken in the context of PA choices like choosing between peace and terrorism, choosing between peace and having sworn to the destruction of Israel.The PA is so good at saying one thing to the world and something opposite, in Arabic to their people, yet, they can't even say the words "jewish state " or recognize Israel's right to exist. Benny Begin is to the point. We must remember the words of Menachem Begin, printed so eloquently at the entrance to the museum in his memory which I paraphrase--Israel's existence is by the might of right, not by the right of might. Israel has a right to exist and that must be the starting point of any discussions. Until the right to a peaceful, secure existence is recognized by the world, negotiations are a total sham, regardless of Obama-ld US pressure
