It is quite interesting to note that most talkback on this issue reads like barrage fire coming from rightist Israelis who won't agree on anything that might make retreat from the territories feaseble and safe for Israel and thus find consensus with a large majority of Israelis. Just for the record, Abou Mazen has declared that he would be willing to agree on international forces being stationed in the Palestinian state to come to ensure safety both for Palestine and for Israel. He knows very well, that Israel will not be willing to quit and make room for "helpfull" troops that Iran might want to dispatch into Palestinian territory. As a matter of fact, it is in the interest of both Palestine and Israel that a reliable buffer be installed. Now, from an israeli perspective, UN-troops will not be first choice, just looking at their poor record with Lebanon and 1967, when they just left Sinai as soon as things were beginning to heat up. So, most probably, there isn't anyone else but Nato able and acceptable to both sides. Good try ? Well, not quite, guy, try again.
