Same old, same old; lots of people reaching an agreement with plastered on smiles and handshakes, that will crumble to dust at the first incident. This part of the world will never ever experience even the possibility of peace, until there is a Palestinian homeland.... that is not a political statement for or against anyone... it is simply a fact.

Israel withdrew from the Gaza Strip in 2005 and southern Lebanon in 2000. That same year, then Prime Minister Ehud Barak offered the Palestinians more at Camp David then Kerry is proposing now. Arafat said "no", and launched the Second Intifada. Hamas and Hezbollah have launched wars of their own since then. THESE are facts, not opinions masquerading as facts. Until the Arab extremists forgo terrorism, this part of the world will not experience the possibility of peace (which is what the word "Islam" means)...period!
