With all due respect, former PM Olmert, I at least give you credit for trying to appease both sides of the argument by taking on the King Solomon's role of proposing spitting the baby in half...However, let's all call this for what it is...a geopolitical, high stakes game...AND let's DEMAND an end to it because frankly, Israelis have A LOT more to lose than Palestinians. It makes ABSOLUTELY NONSENSE to stick with a solution devised in 67...my GOD, get with the modern times...I do not think IF YOU TAKE A VOTE FROM CITIZENS OF BOTH NATIONS if they would mind Jerusalem to be handed over in TOTAL in return for RIGHTS TO LAND as originally discussed AND freedom & peace for ALL people, it would be a "no-brainer" in English simple terms...LET THE PEOPLE on BOTH sides decide their own fate for a CHANGE!
Thanks for choosing to stay with CNN. You really add life to my experiencing the news.
Anat Hoffman has a major problem regarding religious prejudice. But she is wrong in believing that Nelson Mandela is a religious man. Both Desmund Tutu & Nelson Mandela are products of marketing. Both were chosen and marketed to be African Icons of the struggle againt apartheid by the world media years before even Nelson Mandela was released. The ANC had adopted a policy of civil disobedience similar to Ghandi. It was Nelson Mandela who changed that policy to include warefare, and was directly responsible for the arms struggle. His wife was responsible for the necklacing of her own people. These people are not religious they were and are terrorists. Desmond Tutu was needed to give some credibility to the suppressed voice of the blacks during apartheid, therefore he was ordained as an arch-bishop. He has become irrelevant to the majority of blacks post apartheid. To use these people as icons or role models to solve the intollerance in Israel is a fallacy. The intollerance in South Africa is at its highest it has ever been, even at the height of apartheid. This is a story that need to be told. There is a book written by Dr. Dan Roodt called " The Scourge of the ANC" ISBN 0-9584635-5-7 I suggest all political commentators should read this book. In fact the whole world should read it.
