Where is the peace?
Land has been transferred - so where is the peace?
With the full backing of the Bush administration, the UN Security Council passed a resolution (#1850) urging Israel to continue negotiating "core" issues with the Palestinians and pledging to stop at nothing in forcing a two state solution down Israel's throat.
The full court press toward a Palestinian state is being called "irreversible" by Bush administration officials.
As respected Israeli political analyst Michael Freund noted in a recent article: "He [President Bush[ is attempting to impose a diplomatic straitjacket on Israel's democracy by trying to compel the next government to continue with the largely futile process of negotiating with the Palestinian leadership."
