what kind of peace would one have if the arabs don't recognize the jewish state? at best,it'll be a gaza type situation after our one sided withdrawal... accompanied by belligerence and a constant festering threat. where's our self respect? are we so obsequious or so full of hubris that we assume that we can do without recognition?what then do we get?
