Shtrasler misses the point that the Olmert plan is what Israel is prepared to do unilaterally. No one expects anyone on the Palestinian side to agree to it. On the other hand, if the Palestinians reject violence and enter into an honest negotiation, it will be a whole different ball game. That is the strategy behind the plan, in my opinion, to force them into real negotiations, or face unpalatable facts on the ground with little sympathy from the rest of the world thanks to their rejectionism.
