Sharon calls for compromise with Palestinians

Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon has called for reconciliation and compromise with Palestinians to "end the bloody conflict".
In a speech at the UN in New York, Mr Sharon said the two sides must "embark on the path which leads to peace".
He said Israel proved its readiness for "painful concessions" by pulling its army out of the Gaza Strip on Monday.
A Palestinian official responded that the only solution was Israel's complete pullout from the occupied territories.
"The way to peace and stability is through an end to occupation," Palestinian chief negotiator Saeb Erekat was quoted as saying in Gaza by Reuters news agency

I suspect he is trying to pool some power and influence while he still can. I hear old Benny Nitinyahoo (no clue how to spell it) is challenging him for power of the Lakood (no idea on that spelling either) party.

Something happened to this guy. Either he changed or is doing a really good job of hiding his true agenda. Israelis have always been racist against Arabs. I don't want to generalize but Avi, a friend of mine in Dallas, tells me Arabs are treated like Black people were treated in the pre 1950's. Separate but equal. Something like that anyways. People who are mixed are not really accepted by either community. We all know the history of Ariel Sharon. He seems to be under pressure to do this, or he has changed. Giving up settlements he had built is strange in my book. I like this new Ariel Sharon. So far he is doing some good things. The wall is a bad idea.

Ariel Sharon is the same man. Not to say he *could not* have changed recently, after all... Saddam Hussein is now spends his time weighing the merits of Cheetos vs. Doritos.

"Every time we do something, you [Shimon Peres] tell me America will do this and will do that... I want to tell you something very clear: Don’t worry about American pressure on Israel. We, the Jewish people, control America, and the Americans know it."

- Ariel Sharon

He is also quoted extensively on the sickening, racist Stormfront website. It's sad that it takes one racist to expose another; but a racist Sharon is. He has an agenda, and the means pale in comparison to the end. He may cry "peace, peace" but his war has already begun. I see no indication that he intends to stop it.

Thats a very interesting quote

I suppose what I am trying to say is that I will (with reservations) put myself inline with any Israeli leader who is trying (genuinly) to move towards peace and equality for the palastinains , even if the motives may not be pure , if the result is a move forward then we have to support it ,
