    Whether or not the '73 War was a factor is hard to say. Certainly, the early course of that fight did demonstrate that Israel could not feel absolutely safe, even with that buffer. That had to change the psychology I discussed in my other reply.

    However, I would argue there was an intervening event that had a much greater impact upon Israel -- and that was Sadat's visit to Jerusalem. That convinced a lot of Israelis. Perhaps, the Paestinians need to find a latter-day Sadat of their own.
