It was never really serious in terms of something other than apartheid bondage for the Palestinians. It was always political subterfuge, buying still more time, and redeploying the Israeli army and settlers into more defensible and long-term positions. But even so the actual realities are that the Israelis are building more settlements, not really dismantling any important ones. They are also further barricading the Palestinians inside walls, fences, and barricades turning the once Holy Land into pockets of ghettos and prison camps. Tough language we know...but far closer to the reality than what the corporate media dares to report.
