    Every once in a while old familiar words are imbued with new meanings. Like the good old English word ?gay? which has become so repugnant in the modern usage. And just yesterday, professor Rice suggested that the Israeli government and the Palestinian Authority should resort to ?creativity? in order to conclude a deal that would allow free, unrestricted, movement of people and goods in and out of Gaza. But, in spite of the coded diplomatic jargon and the suave smiles of Condi Rice and Ariel Sharon, there's a very sinister meaning to their ?creativity? as applied to the situation on the ground. In the decoded language, what Secretary Rice ?suggestion? amounts to is the following: Ariel Sharon's government should use all the tricks in the book to lull the country into a (false)sense of security and put the lives of Israeli citizens in grave danger of terrorist attacks to reach the deal with Abbas; Abbas, in his turn, should use ?creativity? to dupe the outside world into the impression that the Palestinian Authority is in control of the situation in Gaza. If the Sharon government, again, succumbs to Condi's ?charms? you can bet your last dollar or shekel that that ?creativity? will soon be followed by tragic events on the ground.
