Israel's not having any of it
Haaretz says Israel has announced that the proppsed Tanzim-Hamas agreement is just not good enough. Israel insists on broad security reforms and the cessation of incitement before any dialogue. "Sharon's demands are for a total end to the terror, violence and incitement, the establishment of a new Palestinian security force to fight terror, and replacement of the leadership headed by Yasser Arafat".
Sharon is one tough cookie.
