Hi Bart,

I don't agree with the 90% bit, or with the palestinians
not keeping any promises. I suspect they kept the agreement
on easy to apply promises and not on subjects like not
expanding settlements, or not using more water than was
their due. And then it becomes an interpretation wether it
is indeed 90% or 50%. Because in order to judge that, you
have to somehow weigh the promises, which is very

I thought both were in the 50% range. But I do have to
agree on one thing: Israel is still a democracy. One that
violates human rights, but it is a democracy. Which in the
region we are discussing is rare, though not unheard of.
Yesterday I discussed it with my family, and it seems that
Lebanon is also moving in the right direction. 

But then, agreeing to disagree seems out of the question?
Of course I don't feel the only good jew is a dead jew. But
funnily I feel the same about dead Palestinians. Strange,
isn't it? (being sarcastic, you don't need to reply, though
of course you are free to).
