"Israel was always ready to concede territories in exchange for peace as was proved with Egypt and Jordan, and even with Gaza." (arik) Don't rewrite history. Gaza is a very bad example of conceding territories in exchange for peace. You know that, and did not shrink from lying. Israel handed back the whole of Sinai into Anwar Sadat's hands, against a negotiated and signed treaty, and we got REAL Peace. Sharon idiotically abandoned the Gaza Strip into nobody's hands, without asking for any return from anyone, and we got war - with a tiny Islamist enclave we now cannot live with, nor defeat, we who 42 years ago knew how to crush three Arab armies in six days. Every folly and its price, arik.
