does any out there actually believe that erekat and the palestinians are going to give us peace? i don't think that "settlements or peace" thing has ANY credibility since it is clear to all israelis that the palestinians will never give us peace. in fact, so long as they can get us to give up parts of our country (with the help of obama), their motivation to continue with their war to destroy us is only increased.
