AND STILL NO PEACE why not?

Reader comment on item: Mr. Olmert Visits Washington

It does seem so very foolish to countinue down the same path of land for peace. There's no peace now and there won't be any tommorrow or the day after the withdrawals. So why? Well unless there's some Isreali operation going on that we mistake as surrender, i'd say its been decided the least worse path the Isreali government has decided to take is just give the PA and the like some land, build some fences,and go from there. Clearly peace is not part of the plan.

Whether or not its hoped for is nearly irrelevant. Unless there's some mammoth change in the PA and the plans of their supporters.I can think of no way this plan of dissengagment can be a good thing.Generally speaking, the peace plans thus far are a major factor to the current global predicament. So obviously Israel has decided to move forward with the disengagement. What will the results be is the next step. Bad,real bad,just another bad decision in the line of many, or maybe while the PA and the like change their course and build a state on the granted land.The options do seem so limited.Or maybe this disengagement wont go through. Some crisis or something makes the time and effort for such too costly.These are the options as i see it now. Some things may change between now and then.But the laws of nature clearly havent and probally won't. So i hope for the best. But i'll try not to be fooled into some silly hope of peace resulting from the disengagement plans. Unlees such a change of mind is justified.
