    The first real positive step towards a peaceful resolution between Israel and the Palestinians, but there's still a long way to go... and I give credit to the US for realising that their position (unconditional support of Israel) was flawed, and was not going to achieve anything... I believe that this may have been influenced by the UK as Europe has a more impartial stance on the situation... There is no absolute right and wrong in this situation, both sides have valid points, but both are also guilty of wrong doing...

    I seriously hope that Israel will accept this, as realistically it's the only hope for peace between the two sides.

    Peace

    Definitely a good step, but I would not be too optimistic about an end to violence and terrorism in the Holy Land. Even with an independent Palestinian state, I can always foresee conflict so long as people in the region hang onto their militant notions of who should own what terroritory.

    about fucking time.

    i firmly believe that the palestinians have a right to their own state. they should both have access to jerusalem, too....make it a border city where both israelis and palestinians can go.

    i'm skeptical that real progress will be achieved by this....i guess i'll take a "wait and see" attitude.

    From an article on www.independent.co.uk

    Scary eh? This, just a day after Sharon supposedly lifted the travel ban imposed on Arafat.

    Very scary... the travel ban was supposedly lifted on Arafat, but Israel stationed tanks outside of his HQ, effectively holding him prisoner... not sure if they're still there today
