Wonderful claims, Eli. Let's look at them. "Capitulation has never worked with the Palestinians." How would you know - when has Israel ever capitulated? And you think that freezing settlement building is capitulation? "Just witness the Gaza evacuation." Let's do that. Remember it was Sharon's means of holding on to the West Bank. And imposed unilaterally on the Palestinians. "New settlements will bring peace". Just like the existing ones, is that right? "Only more settlements will convince the Palestinians to make peace with Israel." Wow. To the rest of the world the settlements are the main reason the Palestinians can't make peace. Israel won't even say what peace would mean. Have you - or Israeli leaders - ever heard of the word "negotiation"?
