    Mike, olmert is a democratically appointed prime minister and has the full right to negotiate agreements. There is no doubt that the majority of Israelis do indeed want peace but only if it is true peace with a stable Palestinian state. So it Olment does succeed in negotiating a reasonable final status agreement and an implementation plan which guarantees israel security, the public will be behind him 100 percent and his coalition will last. David, If a final status is negotiated and an implementation plan is negotiated it is in the interest of both Israel and the Palestinians to carry out the agreements. In contrast to Oslo and the Road map where it was not in the interest of both sides to carry them out since it was not clear where they were leading to and if there is a peace acceptable to both sides. It is not practical to have forces which will make the sides carry out what they agreed to. No force the UN can appoint is large enough to force Israel same for Palestinians.
