"That is exactly what happened. You know, the term `political process' is a bundle of concepts and commitments. The political process is the establishment of a Palestinian state with all the security risks that entails. The political process is the evacuation of settlements, it's the return of refugees, it's the partition of Jerusalem. And all that has now been frozen."
So you have carried out the maneuver of the century? And all of it with authority and permission?
"When you say `maneuver,' it doesn't sound nice. It sounds like you said one thing and something else came out. But that's the whole point. After all, what have I been shouting for the past year? That I found a device, in cooperation with the management of the world, to ensure that there will be no stopwatch here. That there will be no timetable to implement the settlers' nightmare. I have postponed that nightmare indefinitely. Because what I effectively agreed to with the Americans was that part of the settlements would not be dealt with at all, and the rest will not be dealt with until the Palestinians turn into Finns. That is the significance of what we did. The significance is the freezing of the political process. And when you freeze that process you prevent the establishment of a Palestinian state and you prevent a discussion about the refugees, the borders and Jerusalem. Effectively, this whole package that is called the Palestinian state, with all that it entails, has been removed from our agenda indefinitely. And all this with authority and permission. All with a presidential blessing and the ratification of both houses of Congress. What more could have been anticipated? What more could have been given to the settlers?"
I return to my previous question: In return for ceding Gaza, you obtained status quo in Judea and Samaria?
"You keep insisting on the wrong definition. The right definition is that we created a status quo vis-a-vis the Palestinians. There was a very difficult package of commitments that Israel was expected to accept. That package is called a political process. It included elements we will never agree to accept and elements we cannot accept at this time. But we succeeded in taking that package and sending it beyond the hills of time. With the proper management we succeeded in removing the issue of the political process from the agenda. And we educated the world to understand that there is no one to talk to. And we received a no-one-to-talk-to certificate. That certificate says: (1) There is no one to talk to. (2) As long as there is no one to talk to, the geographic status quo remains intact. (3) The certificate will be revoked only when this-and-this happens – when Palestine becomes Finland. (4) See you then, and shalom."

I casi sono due:
- o e' un post di puro e semplice servizio -- e allora non c'e' niente da commentare
- o e' un post che parla dei nostri figli e della loro disabilita' -- e in questo caso il fatto e' che -- ci capirete, e se non ci capite peggio per voi -- non e' un argomento su cui si possa tollerare a cuor leggero l'invasione di spammer, troll, venditori di rimedi miracolosi, sostenitori di teorie strampalate, crociati di questa o quell'altra crociata -- insomma tutta quella roba che gia' fa perdere la pazienza quando si parla dell'ultima str... del politico di turno, ma che quando si parla di un figlio fa proprio male.
