My Comment: If stunts like this (and the release of Pollard would be a stunt) are deemed necessary for peace to occur .... then here is an easy prediction .... there will be no peace because there is no foundation for peace. We are now down to a peace process that is dependent on gestures and promises instead of a true commitment and desire for peace.
