    i agree with much of what sneh says in the article except a few important points. firstly the problem with reciprocal assurances before disarming the militants is not what the palestinians signed up to. read the road map to peace and the first issue that is dealt with is the disarming of the terrorist organisations, its there in black and white. we cant keep signing documents if we are not even going to apply the first item. the road map has been around for a while now the palestinians have read it various times and must have known what was expected of them. israel has lessened restrictions, pulled out of some cities, continues to release prisoners and is going to completely pull out of gaza.....all the palestinians have done so far is agree to a cease-fire which hamas and jihad have openly declared is a stop gap effort to reorganise and rearm. we have seen in the northern ireland issue that the main issue always goes back to disarming the militants/terrorists. while they are armed and out there they can scuttle anything and cause chaos and mayhem. taking away the arms should be in the PAs interest as much if not more than israels.
