    "large majority of israelis want peace, with security." (CJK) ... with security, AND, of the West Bank, their "forefathers' heritage", a chunck as big as possible. And an unquestioned sovereignty over East-Jerusalem, including the Dome of the Rock and El-Aqsa Mosque. Did I forget something? Yes, an Israeli enclave in Hebron. And in Gush Etzion. And Rachel-Our-Mother's Tomb. Were it not so, how come we have now the most rightist Knesset in our history, and a PM whose arm had to be twisted hard before he consented - in his second term - to share the Land with another people? One more proof, by the way, that a rightist government is a government that adopts leftist views - 30 years too late. At least. Were it no so, there would have been, since long ago, an irresistible demand from a "large majority of israelis" for an immediate end to all settlement construction. And for strengthening Abbas's leadership, so that he could speak for all the Palestinians, and start negotiate. Facts speaking for themselves. " ... the Israeli military announced that the number of Jewish settlers on the West Bank has risen above 300,000 for the first time with about 200,000 more in East Jerusalem. About 2.5 million Palestinians live in the same territory." 27 July 2009, www.guardian.co.uk/ All the signs are that a "large majority of israelis" couldn't care less, hardly the right attitude for a "large majority of israelis" to show its desire for peace.
