It is absurd to think that negotiations can be fair and just, and will produce positive results. Negotiations can be fruitful only between equals or near-equals. The disparity between Israelis and Palestine is so huge as to make negotiations worthless. Israelis have hundreds of times the economy, and thousands of times the military firepower that Palestine has. Negotiations can only mean Palestine signing on the dotted line. Some of you have criticised Palestinians for not acknowledging "reality." What reality? The Soviet Union was a far greater reality. Where did it go? The situation in the Middle East is a military one, and the solution can only be military. Who will impose it? How would I know?
