    Let's suppose Peres is right, and Abu Mazen would sign a peace accord and (core issues aside for one moment) Palestine would be erected in the West Bank and Gaza and east Jerusalem, in some way. The moment Abu Mazen isn't there anymore, the peace accord is in danger. Mubarak is out of the picture and the Israeli embassy is pogrommed in Cairo, the gas pipelines are burned, and the Peace Treaty is threatened seriously with annullment by the Muslim Brotherhood dominated parliament / government. Peres and Abu Mazen could have their 15 minutes of fame, and some would leave Israel bashing for 15 minutes. Therafter, Jihadism and the unstability of the Arab world and Iran, will return to business as usual. Toppling Abu Mazen will be peanuts, and Hamas spends its life preparing for it. Then the West Bank would become like Gaza, and Israel would be strangled by its neck. Now is time to make peace with Abu Mazen, is not the same as now is the right time to trust in a Palestinian state.

Operation octogenarian

In 1969, veterans of the Haganah, Irgun and WWII were asked to help defend the northern communities. The media described a giant success, but archives show they were mostly asked to help with the harvest.
