Excuse me Haaretz Ed, but the FIRST STEP is not for Israel to evacuate the outposts, but for the Palestinians to  Recognise the State of Israel, because no-one makes peace with someone who does not exist. Furthermre, Israel has already implemented part of her First Step by releasing hundreds of Palestinian Prisoners. Notwithstanding the fact that Israel is ready to forego the FIRST STEP of Recognition..... Palestinians still have to agree to  Accept All Past Agreements and  Disarm and Stop Terror according to the Road Map to Peace. One can hardly see anything of this being carried out though 'secret talks' are taking place between two of the seemingly weakest links among today's Leaders.
