Amira Rants and the respondents Rave. Let's remember one thing, the four years of negotiations took place during the suicide bombs of Yasser Arafat's intifada. Why that might slow down negotiations? Gee what a surprise. And yet the end result? A new, evnironmentally sound facility is in the works to be built.... despite the shrill polemics from Amira about the "Palestinian development of the territory endangers its chances of becoming Judaized." In fact, rifht after that, she sneaks in the end result "This site will not open before 2010" That, is a grand total of two years away. You show me a garbage facility of any sort, much less a modern technologically advanced one, that gets built in less time, forget about one in a war zone. But apparently that's the point. Negotiations during fighting, and the opening of a new facilty can only be couched in terms of Israeli malfeasence for it to remain politically correct.
