Israel is committed to peace? I am amazed that you have the Chutzpah to make such a claim...after Sharon's Panzers have had their own Blitzkrieg in the West Bank...after Apache helicopters have fired rockets into Palestinian dwellings, and bulldozers have destroyed houses and orchards to make room for more settlements. Sharon is your last card to play and he does not seem to have cowed the Palestinians. I have the feeling that Israel has met its own Vietnam, unless it resorts to even more cruelty and violence. Israel wants peace? Israel would like to promote a wider war, with the US doing its bidding and visiting violence on other Moslem states.
The choice of the city of Helsinki is not incidental as the capital of Finland had hosted US-Soviet negotiations on the limitation of nuclear stockpiles in 1969
