assume that it is not, is all the more reason to focus on two things: 1)Israel must continue to insist that the leadership of the Arabs of Eretz Israel, presently the Hamas government and its messenger, Mahmud Abbas, adhere to the three points demanded by the international community of, acctenptance of all signed agreements, recognition of Israel's right to exist, and ceasation of all acts of terror, violence and the preparation for both. 2)In view of at least 70 years of not missing an opportunity to miss an opportunity for peace and statehood, Israel must begin to consider again the idea of pursuing an accomodation with Jordan and Egypt, instead of the PLO and the PA, regarding the disputed territories, and doing so based on UN resolutions 242 and 338. Continuing to deal with the conflict the way we have up to now may turn out to be a prescription to at least 70 additional years of bloodshed and misery. Is it not high time to think outside the box?
