    The editorial is well presented and merit great deal of political sense. Araft was a liar and devious;Haniyeh is frank and forth coming. That is the A & Z of the story. But the heart of the plot is still there. The enemy lost its creditablity but not his aim. The question is : So why 'withdrawal' ? To please our friends ? A tap on Israel shoulder with'well done old boy' Hamas will go; sooner than later. The next after Hamas, at best he will want something to give Israel something. What Israel is going to offer and give after 'withdrawal' ? Nothing for nothing in politics.Everything at a price. Israel will not have a buyer because it will have nothing to sale. After 'withdrawal' Israel will not have even a capital for a partnership. Things will go full circle. Ends up where it all started. Israel will have to go to war, occupy Palestinian lands so it can talk peace with the Palestinians. Sinai was the price Israel paid for peace with Eygpt. Akram Zekaria,
