  •  I apologize, I thought (0+ / 0-)

    for a while that you had a serious commitment to Israeli-Palestinian peace.

    •  I do... (0+ / 0-)

      And the Clinton initiative had Ariel as part of Israel.  For that matter, the Israeli public just isn't going to support any plan that 'gives away' an enormous fast growing town in Israel.  They won't support giving away Haifa or Beer Sheva either.  Have you been to Ariel?  Its not just some settlement.  Its bigger than many suburbs in America...

      •  But you don't support the Clinton Parameters.. (0+ / 0-)

        ..either do you?  Clinton Parameters re. Jerusalem:

        The general principle is that Arab areas are Palestinian and Jewish ones are Israeli. This would apply to the Old City as well. I urge the two sides to work on maps to create maximum contiguity for both sides.

        •  I (like Israel) (0+ / 0-)

          was much further to the left on issues of peace before the intifada restarted.. Everytime Jewish blood spills, I move further to the right.  Every time there's a day of peace, I move further to the left.  It might be an usual paradigm, but most of Israel is the same way.

          And frankly, its no different in the US.  I'm in favor of stronger gun control every time there's a school shooting--and care less abouth the issue if there's a spell without them for a while.  Life is a balance like that.
