Olmert sees the cup half empty in that his outgoing advice is to give up East Jerusalem and the "Arab territories "gained in 1967 for peace.
Others have reminded us that all our giving up of land has never gained us any peace. We just wind up giving another piece of Israel to the Arabs which gets them a closer advantage in shooting at us.
I feel that not one inch of land should be given up for the reason cited above. The Palestinians have not changed their charter to accept Israel among the nations of the Middle East, and they state that they wish to destroy Israel. Therefore, giving up more land will gain us nothing. It gains us nothing to go backwards.
