hopefully the PM *ll abstain from further gestures. Keep on mind Abbas*s poor health and high age! The WB*s political future is unpredictable, bc the Pals have postponed Parliament and presidential elections indefinately, which creates uncertainty of their pol. prospects. The WB*s political "stand-by" situation forces peace negotiations to be held back, bc we have no quarantees on the continuance of the WB*s present situation. Who will take over the WB after Abbas? Will there ever be democratic Parl. elections anymore? It *d be wise of Israel to proceed cautiously with the WB. Temporary borders at this point sound like a good idea. Israel may find herself in a trap-situation, if she proceeds too trustingly and positively with the WB, and gives too much, since we don*t know, who *ll be in charge of the WB in future. Israel*s focus, when dealing with the WB, *ld be on her security and defensable borders. The PA-state MUST be founded around them.
