    It's unfair to say that there were no benefits from the peace process. The period between Oslo and the second intifada was the calmest period in Israel's history so far. Oslo failed because there was cheeating on both sides. Arafat equipped his "police force" with Israeli arms and then turned them against Israel. Barak did not stop the settlements; they actually grew significantly during this period. A true peace means that both sides abide by the agreements. This is the case with Egypt and Jordan, with a few infractions that are always expected. A true peace with the Palestinians means a total deal, not a peacemeal. It can be achieved now based on the Saudi initiative, if all the sides, including Hamas, accept the deal. It will mean evacuation of many settlements, but I don't believe the government will dismantle the large settlement blocks. If your colleaage , settler Babe, represents you too he claims that most settlers would fold for a fair and just peace.
