    Sami,Israel wants peace more than anything.They are afraid.Afraid of giving up their position. I believe that peace is possible.I am here talking about what I think are Israeli injustices and also Palestinian injustices. I believe the bottom line is fear on both sides. As far as history goes,at Camp David both right wings played games.I think Arafat was fearful of his right and because he made the decision to not accept the accord,the right in Israel were safe from showing their hand. If Arafat would have agreed it wouldnt have got a hope in hell of ratification. We have to go beyond. In actual fact,Jews should be convincing Jews and you should be pushing the Palestinians and other Arabs to accept Israel and work within a situation that wil be win-win rather than win-lose because up to now with all the talking its still lose-lose. A bullet shot from a palestinian has caused a Palestinian to die.A bullet shot from Israel has caused and Israeli to die. There is a constant smile on the face of a right wing Arab and a constant smile on the face of a right wing Jew for they know that we wont stop killing each other.
