It is not a question of pessimism or optimism,it is being realistic. The Arabs do not want peace with Israel. When I hear that the Palestinians are filling their undergroung tunnels with arms,this is not the way of peace,it means preparation for war on a large scale.The Syrians are moveing large quantities of missiles to the border with Israel,Hezbollah has been rearmed to the teeth. This is preparation for peace?
