    "As long as the Palestinians demand the right of return and Jeruslam ...." (Jason) In the context of this discussion, there no such a thing as "the Palestinians". You don't seem to know it, but there two kinds of Palestinians, one in full control of Gaza, and recognised by the entire civilized world as a terrorist islamist organisation, while the PLO controls the West Bank, and at its head is someone Pres. GW Bush told us is a "man of peace", in Sep 2006. It is silly, to say the least, to expect these two groups to speak of one voice, and to give up any demand before the start of negotiations. Again: Public declarations and opinion polls cannot come instead of negotiations. "It's only matter of time before Israel commit a genocide." (Jason) If that is what the Israelis want, let it be. Look, it is not the Palestinians' business to prevent an Israeli PM from sitting on the chair left empty in The Hague by Slobodan Milosevic, nor to save Israel from itself. The Palestinians have nothing to lose, we Israelis may lose our state. "Getting ourselves a state was hard, but losing it is easy." Pinhas Sapir (1906-1975), quoted by Amos Elon in his review of Tom Segev's book "1967: And the Country Changed its Face" - in "So misled by the leaders", Haaretz, July 22, 2005. www.haaretz.com/hasen/pages/ShArt.jhtml?itemNo=603316# On P.Sapir, see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pinchas_Sapir
