    AL: "Any unilateral decision will release us from all of our commitments and will allow us also to make unilateral decisions," The first part of that sentence is true, but the second part does NOT logically follow e.g. Israel did not have a free hand to make unilateral decisions BEFORE Oslo. AL: "For example, imposing Israeli sovereignty on certain areas," That unilateral decision is contrary to int'l law, and it remains illegal NO MATTER WHAT THE PA DOES. AL: "cutting off all kinds of ties and transfers of money and a string of benefits and agreements put into place since the Oslo accords," Again, Israel is the occupying power, and so it is not free to act as a feudal warlord NO MATTER WHAT THE PA DOES. In short: Israel doesn't **just** have the authority of an occupying power: it **also** carries the legal obligations that go with that legal authority. Lieberman simply doesn't understand that, because Lieberman is a thug in a tailored suit.
