Still More on the Geneva Accords

Ehud Barak on the issue:

Former prime minister Ehud Barak, who left office in early 2001, several months after the intifada broke out, said Monday it was
unfortunate that the Labor Party had permitted some of its members to formulate such a "delusional" peace plan.

"This is a fictive and slightly peculiar agreement... that clearly harms the interests of the State of Israel," Barak told Israel Radio.
Meanwhile, Ariel Sharon was interviewed by Cal Thomas, and had this to say about Five Conditions the palestinians must meet:
(1) dismantle the terror organizations such as Islamic Jihad, Hezbollah and Hamas and make a 100 percent effort to end terrorism.
(2) collect its weapons and hand them to a third party, preferably the United States, which will destroy them.
(3) arrest, interrogate and punish terrorists, their supporters, their commanders (who are implicated in) murder.
(4) take all necessary diplomatic steps and stop incitement and...
(5) at least start to teach peace (to children).

Asked if he saw the Palestinians making any efforts to even begin fulfilling one or more of these conditions, Sharon said, "Not by now." Sharon indicated he is weary of "declarations, speeches and promises," which, he said, he no longer considers "something serious" Only performance matters now in Israel's relationship with the Palestinians.
