- this is about the "surface" practicals - thinking "big"-with realism, if out of "boxes"
A LEBANESE peace IS dependent to the palestinian-israel peace.
This WAS nearer than it had ever got (- hence the doubts re outside sabotage - perhaps even for commercial interests - but nevertheless. . . . ) A year ago, polls + surveys measured MAJORITIES amongst both israelis + palestinians FOR mutual recognition.
Even if the "cessation of violence" is, perhaps, tripwired ( - if some ARE using this situation to try to restir up the "clash of cultures" theme - then the overslow involvement of UN troops, then "mystery" outrages ascribed to alleged "islamic terrorists" might "happen" - but either way - - - - ) - the fact is, the worlds attention - the worlds PEOPLES attention is FULLY ENGAGED WITH the solving of these problems.
YES, the involvement of syria ( golan heights ), the palestinian returnees - at least getting supported out of the ghettoes of the camps - even a change in the iranian attitude ( - happening - a meticulous examination of that CBS chat yields the fact that the holocaust isnt denied by the iranian pres. in his most recent comments - but he asks why the palestinians had to suffer too. "great games" brit diplomats? perhaps progress.
The wider world CAN rise to this occasion.
