    There IS some humanity and intelligence in Israel! There is a way forward for Israel, and it's REALLY simple. The entire world now accepts the existence of Israel, including the Arab states who have all affirmed this as a reality on the ground. Reject the long-standing Likud promise of no Palestinian state between the Jordan and the sea, stop the obvious device of separating Gaza from the WB (i.e. Israel created Hamas and pulled out of Gaza to divide the Palestinians, only to complicate peace negotiations), and work out a REAL deal with a united Palestine and stop BS'ing everybody that the Palestinians are to blame. You aren't fooling anybody, with the possible exception of what you see in the mirror, and all you are accomplishing is the alienation of friends you might really need some day. 60 Minutes stood up to you. More will follow, especially if you make a bunch more American sons and daughters die in yet another, senseless war. Forget about having settlements in places like Hebron, and using the fact they are smack in the middle of the WB as a 'security issue'! Check points belong in Israel proper, and that's IT! Use your military might to get the settler, whackos under control. Get out of places you do not belong and treat the Palestinians fairly, with a sovereign state of their own, as opposed to the one you want to keep under your jackboot. In summary, try behaving like decent human beings. Who knows, you might like it.
