It'd be nice, but I think they're smoking something that's not legal in the U.S.  Smile

Excellent answer Alpha 1, I had the same thought!
It's indeed a beautiful dream, but it's nothing more than a dream. Sadly, this kind of political dreams, so far away from ANY reality, can prove highly dangerous; it's the kind of utopical "vision" that former PM Peres had a few years ago and which plunged Israel in its current inferno.

i dont see israel negotiating with barghouti. israel accused him of being a terrorist leader, dispatched commandos to hunt him down, and now has him on trial for murdering Israeli citivilains. not exactly a great partner.


although i definately could see a gaza pullout and a pullback from some west bank settlements. not so sure about jerusalem, it is the "eternal united" capital.

go canada!

It would be nice but i believe that jerusalem shuld be an open city, dividing it wont help, nor will it solve the western wall/al-asqa mosque problem.i also think peres has more chance of being pm, as long as itsnt ben net.
It is amazing what can be accomplised when nobody takes the credit
