    "The security of Israel depends on the fate of Radical Islam, and that is not a demographic problem!" (A. Zekaria) Total nonsense. You would be the first to admit that our conflict with the Palestinian people began long before the emergence of Radical Islam. "The situation now is different from few years ago" you said. Of course it is. Everything is now different. Quite odd you refrain from saying that - concerning the Khartoum's signatories. It does not change the fact that Israel's security - even its very survival - depends, first of all, on living in peace with ALL its neigbours, not on its ever-expanding settlement adventure in the West Bank, a land outside its sovereignty. Facts have long ago proved that keeping forever under occupation a foreign stateless Muslim population is the very worst way for Israel to fight Radical Islam. When, soon after June #67, we convinced ourselves that the stateless population we had taken control of, would consent to stay forever our silent and obedient subjects, little did we know that, 42 years later, we would be confronted by an Islamist terror group we cannot live with nor defeat, the sole master of the Gaza Strip and of a Palestinian parliament. The Islamists have no interest in seeing an end to the occupation. It only helps them advance their cause.
