    It always amazes me to see Yossi Beilin and other strong backers of the Oslo process sounding off in public. These are people who, by their mistaken trust in the Palestinians, are partly responsble for the deaths of thousands of Israeli civilians. After the Yom Kippur war, an investigation was made into how such serious intelligence errors could be made, and some of the people involved were made to pay the political and professional price. At least in the case of the Yom Kippur war the people who died as a result of these failures were soldiers, which is of course tragic but it is part of being a soldier. In the case of the Oslo failure most of the victims were innocnet civilians. Instead of admitting that he was wrong and retiring from public life Yossi Beilin keeps trying to push back into the nightmare. It's as if after the Yom Kippur war, Dado and Golda stayed in their positions and publicly declared that we have too many soldiers in Sinai and on the Golan and that the Egyptians and Syrians pose no threat to us.
