    about many, many things, most of them very fundamental and important
    i have disagreed with his policies and views on much of the israel/palestinian issue, but he is on the cusp of a momentous triumph, if at least in daring to think beyond the conventional wisdom and the expectations of most

    Or... he could be another Inspector Clouseau. ;)

    I didn't think that most of the criticism towards Bush was that he was doing the WRONG things regarding Israel/Palestine, just that he wasn't doing enough, at least compared to Clinton. Maybe, in the end, it is up to Israel and the Palestinian people to make peace, and not up to the US, UN, or EU?

    I don't think that Clinton did much that was effective there. Alot of flapping of the arms not much flying going on, if you know what I mean.

    Peace will begin when the Palestinians realize the PLO is leading them down a path of an interminable war of attrition and not even one moment sooner regardless of who the President is.

    If you compare everything accomplished in the middle east by Jimmy Carter to that which was accomplished by Clinton, you come up dead even. Neither of them produced anything more than photo ops and "peace in our time" treaties.
