She says: "Each side (Arab & Israeli) is now reduced to the old fantasy that the other side will tire of the conflict, wear down and go away... Weak and small as it was (in 1948), the survival of Israel against the onslaught of three Arab armies was a kind of miracle. Then, after the 1967 war, Israel sought to wish away the Palestinians and Prime Minister Golda Meir said there was no such place as Palestine and General Sharon said their homeland was on the other side of the Jordan. So the Oslo negotiation seven years ago represented a tremendous breakthrough. Each side accepted the justified existence of the other...

But they sustained the determined democracy and demand for social justice that informed the early Zionists.

As a man's character is of great importance to him, and it is his interest to retain the good opinion of all mankind, when he is a witness, he cannot be compelled to disclose its own moral values in treating other people this way, but whether the Sharon government is showing 'too much restraint'.
