Hi Cipora, I like your recent posts, although it may not matter to you. I see a strong inclination towards peace (even if it means evacuation of some settlements) and a supreme concern for security. Most posters think that the two are incompatible. Barak (and he is the most experiences of the bunch in the governmemt) seems to favor some evacuation and transfer of control a) when the PA shows that it has muscle and not only good will (which it seems to have now). b) when Israel finds a response to short range missiles and will be able to render them harmless. He estimates two to three years. c) in the meantime much improvement can be done in the lives of the Arabs in the WB, and general principles of a two state solution can be agreed upon, while not yet implemented, Be well and continue contributing your wise comments.
