    In his last speech before the Knesset, October 1995, Mr. Yitzhaq Rabin drew the contour of a future peace accommodation with the Palestinians: 1) Jerusalem will remain united under Israel's sovereignty and will also include the suburbs of Giv'at Zeev and Ma'aleh Adumim. 2) The Jordan Valley must be viewed in the widest possible definition of the terms and it too must remain under Israel's rule. 3) Major settlement blocs, e.g. Ariel, Gush Etzion, will become part of Israel's sovereign territory. 4) A future Palestinian state will not be like a regular state. Its border passes and air space will be controlled by Israel and it will have to be demilitarized. Obama of course has difficulties accepting the ideas of the prince of peace, Mr. Rabin; ideas that are rooted in the realization that peace must come based on meeting national and security interests of Israel. Yet, Mr. Binjamin Natanjahu's ideas are nearly identical to those of Rabin. So, where do the liberals from abroad stand: With Obama who appears to lack knowledge of the subject and experience dealing with it, or rather that of Rabin and Netanjahu with whose "policies" they disagree....??
