i was not at the arafat talks. do not think that arafat was not risking lis life by talking with israel. also it is insulting to assume that rabbin, the entire mossad, state department, israel foreign ministry were stupid when the entered talks with arafat. maybe they were. but the key issue is whether there will be 2 states. if the settlements do not cease there cannot be 2 states. if you want to use the security argument put the territories under military rule (allowed by international law) and evacuate all jewish civilians. we can wait 10, 15 20 50 years until there is a secure peace. settlements have nothing to do with peace or security.
