ABSTRACT
The article presents an editorial regarding the peace process between Israel and Palestine. On the Israeli and American left, plenty of people remain who would turn the slightest sign of Palestinian goodwill into a rationale for an Israeli return to the armistice lines of 1949, which are the lines from which the Six Day War began in 1967. Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon has become a practical man who wants to take practical steps that will secure Israel's future as both a democratic and a Jewish state. This means that he is willing to let as many Palestinians as possible now under Israel's control go free with their houses and their land so long as their state does not endanger Jewish Life. Israel has won the terrorism war.
