Akiva is absolutely right. A settlement freeze will not bring about peace. First we need a partner on the Palestenian side. We wish we could create this partner, but we cannot. Netanyahu's vision of economic growth is at least a step in the right direction, but it will likely take decades until a true leader arises. Until then, Akiva and like thinkers will feel better pounding our collective chest and imagining we have more control over this situation than we do. Sad.
