This is really a shocking day for me, I'm about to agree with you, though we've never agreed in the past. Listen, Israel needs peace. People are scared to come visit their Holy Land, people in Israel are scared and tired, even though they're tough enough to make do. On the Palestinian side, people are starving and dying so that religious leaders can look good in the news! Arabs need peace as well, more badly than the Israelis. We MUST reach a concensus. We MUST come to the table agreeing that at the end, there will be an agreement. I'm not a fan of Abbas. I do think that Gaza should remain blockaded until Schalit is back in Israel and the Kassams stop. Israelis can't give in on everything, to people like Hamas that want to kill them. But we MUST recognize that peace is the objective, because Palestinians are on the breaking point and Israelis aren't overjoyed at the thought of 60 years more war.
