    I am no supporter of Arik Sharon's policies but at a time when homocide attacks have occurred in almost every Israeli city and town causing the type of absolute destruction to human life we have never experienced in the diaspora Sharon's courage in persuing a viable solution to this conflict is to be commended. After all, the 21 Arab nations request land for peace - will Israel receive any guarantees that Gaza will not simply become another Jenin, for armed terrorist organisations such as Hammas who command support from large parts of the Arab population (in close proximity to Ashquelon and Ashdod?). Despite, Sharon's statements to the Israeli press last week, I believe that he ultimately understands that Jews and Arabs have to find a way to live in peace. There are two conflicting nationalisms here; neither of which are going to relent. I as a Jew have to believe that I can make a true peace with my Arab brother otherwise the alternative is perpetual conflict and violence. Maybe, Sharon, as a politician and a general has both the experience and the will to both understand this and implement it.
