RE: 'Israel may act first' -- Cheney
There is still controversy about what was offered until this day. The Israelis say that it was 90% of the demands, although I sincerely doubt they are willing to give that much. Because this means that Israelis were willing to give up 90% of the land, give up 90% of East Jerusalem, and accept 90% of the refugees back. Do you honestly believe that all that was given and Arafat just refused? IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m sure that it wasnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t.
What was given was a lot less than that. Most of them were only proposals from Clinton to Arafat, without having full approval from Barak. But when Arafat refused, it was so easy for Barak to accept and blame.
I believe that most people make compromises only when the cost of not making such compromises is greater than the cost of keeping the current situation. Till now, itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s clear that this moment hasnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t arrived yet. I hope it does soon to spare the lives of innocent people that are dying daily on both sides. The Israelis think that accepting the Palestinians' demands will threaten their existence. While the Palestinians think that by giving up their demands, they are giving up their rights which will also threaten their existence. So they both resort to violence because they donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t see a solution. Violence is a sign of desperation.
