    Dear Pal, - it's not a question of power. It would be nice if the Israelis could just get up & go, & that would be the end of the problem. By the way, there's no way you can sign peace treaties unilaterally. I appreciate your fairly moderate positions, but all experience shows the solution isn't this simple. I remember the Oslo years well. Israel DID gradually leave Pal. land, & Hamas came on the scene & undermined the whole process severely. Once the Israelis leave, you think all the extremist groups w/their maximalist demands will disappear? Only a very thoroughly negotiated agreement that deals w/all the key issues, sufficiently credible to both sides, declared before all the world & w/instruments of verification, (maybe w/even a referendum on both sides) can get us anywhere. This is what Oslo was lacking. Sheba, the Golan & other peace reaties can follow easily. Shalom, -
