    Hello Shlomo in Tel Aviv, It seems you just don't get it many of Israel's friends in the US will simply will not accept the status quo in the Palestinian territories anymore from Israel and thus it must end the power struggle between itself and the Pale- stinian people if it wishes to avoid being further isolated and delegitimize as a player in the global economy. In addition, the Arab states will continue to threaten it if it doesn't end the occupation now. Thus Israel must re- liguish its control over the territories (as other occupiers have done) and restore the rights of the Palestinian people. Of course, Abba Eban has already said all of this before in not so many different words in an Op-Ed in the New York Times in 1988: "If we insist on ruling an entire territory and population (which we never envisioned when we made the dramatic breakthrough to Jewish statehood.), we shall lose our Jewish majority, our democratic principles, our hopes of ultimate peace, the prospect of avoiding war, the main- tenance of our international friendships, the durability of the Egyptian treaty relationship and any chance of a national consensus at home. The status quo is the least viable and the most catastrophic of all Israeli options." Hence what Akiva is saying it will take an ordinary PM like Olmert to take on this extraordinary task and make it happen. (And I disagree with you it is most definitely is the PM task as Israel is the occupying power.) Dutch
