    I can't disagree with any of it.  In fact, I believe that our use of the "carrot" has gone way overboard and produced nothing positive.  The time has certainly come to swap tactics to use of the "stick" to get this moving along.

    Israel has the upper hand in this in every way possible - except for World Opinion.  Getting them to move in the right direction is the key.  Giving both sides a set of starting parameters has to be part of the negotiations.  It at least gives them something to START talking about.

      I'm asking you to believe. Not in my ability to bring about real change in Washington ... *I'm asking you to believe in yours.* Barack Obama
