The Peretz positions with respect to peace seem similar to the Geneva Accords of Beilin/Abed Rabbo. The one difference seems to be that Peretz speaks about changing the route of the "wall" while Geneva was negotiated before the "wall". The "wall" is a good measure for security. For all we know, Peretz may have a wall on Geneva's borders. I point this out in order to encourage Peretz and Beilin to cooperate and sell a Geneva-like plan to the Israeli public. Indeed, the sale will now be much more successful than before. In recent times Yossi Beilin is used to go on weekly trips to various Israeli towns and explain Geneva to local leaders. The response is normally good, even in development towns the population of which is mostly Sephardi. Imagine how more convincing a Peretz sale would be to an Israeli sector which constitutes more than half the population. Peretz and Beilin can become very effective partners. I anticipate that by 2010, the time of the following Israeli elections, Israelis will be tired of Sharon's non-diplomatic and power-oriented policies which gained little so far and will yield even less in the future. Peretz and Beilin are young and can develop a good future together.
