HAVE THEY NOT SUFFERED ENOUGH?

Tony Blair has today been in Gaza for a series of visits.

These visits prompted in Blair the following thought:

The pre-conditions to a successful peace process are threefold: first, a dramatic and broad improvement in the daily lives of Palestinians; second, a unified Palestinian politics on a basis that explicitly is in favour of peace and two states, meaning a sovereign State of Palestine and a secure, accepted State of Israel; and third, an enhanced role for the region, in alliance with the international community, which must step up to share leadership of the issue.

He omitted to mention, fourth, an Israeli commitment to withdraw to its legal borders in the context of a two-state settlement; and fifth, the immediate shutting up and departure from the region of Tony Blair, preferably under duress.
