    Their is a choice to be made.Will Israel hold the possibility of a viable end game that a real Palestinian could possibly accept or not? Whether this end game becomes viable in one week or in 10 years the question is will Israel be willing to move that way if the Palestinians are also willing to do the same.I understand if things can be accomplished for now with Palestinians maybe for a long time to come, but Israel must bury its head in the sand, the day of accounting always comes.Israel should do its unilateral withdrawls but must keep an eye to a more comprehensive solution.The outlines of that solution look something Taba Geneva, it is clear.I am afraid that Israel will confuse temorary and needed expediancy for the end and have to learn the hard way that maybe it is not.Sometimes a person must do the thinking not only for himself but for the others he is involved with like it or not.For not to do so will drag him down in their bullshit.In fact sometimes the only way one can extricate himself is to do the thinking for both.Let Israel be the wiser of the two and take the long view and see the big picture.All because the Palestinians are lost in their obscurantist paranoid nightmares doesnt mean that Israel should delude itself either.
