    Israel is definitely NOT ready to end the occupation. It has become addicted to it, prefer its certain unpleasantness to the insecure alternative of withdrawal. In the mean time the religious fanatical settlers are reeping the fruits, protected by the IDF they steal and plunder, screaming how disgusting the Israelis are that want them to abide -at least- to Israeli law. Even this is accepted by the Israeli people. It reminds me of Fahrenheit-9/11, where Michael Moore describes so clear about how the Bush regime was so succesfull in installing fear in the harts of the Americans, that they went along with this absurd plan that none of their friends supported (accept Britain and Israel, ofcourse) Israelis have been made so afraid by their leaders that they are struck dumb, paranoid, and prefer EVERYTHING as it is right now. Any change is considered a new `destruction of the House of David`, like they poetically describe it. No, it will take another generation or maybe two..
