It is rediculous that the Israeli left, has attempted to come up with some new points, that should be adopted when looking to "end" the Middle East political situation. The Israeli left, had their opportunity from at least 1991-2001. Their was a brief period, when Netanyahu was PM. What did Israel obtain in return ? - Nothing but a worsening of it's security situation. Israel had far better security under Shamir, than it did with Peres. What is the situation on the ground? Since 1990, the Palestinians have gone from rocks and bottles, to mines, small arms, and Qassam rockets. With more concessions, they will simply have more opportunities, to illegally import more outlawed weapons under the noses of the inept UN. What is new? This brings me to the subject of my post.- Who do you negotiate with? An inept leader with no following, who was pushed off the street in days? Hamas? A killer in prison? Bad choices! It is best for Israel to wait for true reform from the PA
