The UN offered a partition plan, which the Arabs rejected. P M Ehud Barak offered Arafat about 98% of everythiong he could possibly want -- Gaza, West Bank and East Jerusalem -- and Arafat replied by declaring an intifada. Ariel Sharon pulled all Israelis out of Gaza, and Hamas threw out the PA and took over. Israel made lasting peace with Egypt and Jordan, because they were committed to peace. Hamas is committed to terrorism.
