Why is this such a startling revelation in Israel? Supporters of Israel have been saying this for 20 years. Before there is any talk of withdrawing troops, teh Arabs must DEMONSTRATE with actions that they are interested and capable of peaceful coexistence. To date, the moderate Abbas has not made one speech to his people saying that they need to accept, tolerate, and work together with the Jewish neighbors. He still maintains the Arafat position: "give us land and right of return and we won't blow you up." that's not peace and it's nto worth the ink and paper.
