    Re: Quartet talks peace with Israel, Palestinians

    Since the expiry last September of a temporary ban on settlement building -- which Netanyahu refused to extend -- the Palestinians have refused all direct contact with the Israelis, saying they will not talk while settlers build on land they want for a future state.
    I find it interesting that while this land is Israel, the so called Palestinians are living there; able to go about their everyday life activities .. should they choose to be law abiding, but to have a Palestinian state, there can't be any Jews there?

    Also, won't Peres ever go away?

    Peres is one of a number of senior Israeli officials who has previously backed the idea of setting up a Palestinian state within provisional borders as part of an interim agreement.
    Those "provisional" borders WILL be a matter of war should they be changed any when not provisional ... unless, in the most unlikely scenerio, they are expanded in the final, not so provisional, state.

    The church is on Earth to save souls from a lost world, not to save the world from lost souls.

    Man learns about history, not from history. To learn from history requires wisdom. Cut off from God, he has none, so history repeats; no new thing under the sun.
