New Beginning in Israel?

Haaretz - Israel News

Where the politics of Israel is heading after the withdrawal from Gaza is of course a most important question.

Yesterday Ariel Sharon spoke to the UN General Assembly in New York, and did so with words that have not been uttered by him before. There is open rebellion in parts of his Likud party, but judgning by this speech, Ariel Sharon will chart a way of his own more in accordance with what seems to be the desire of a majority if the people of Israel.

Details apart, this must be seen as good news for peace in the region and for Israel itself.
