it takes two to tango

Israeli author Amos Oz reflects on the significance of the week's events in Gaza and the West Bank. (Real Audio format)

Amos Oz points out that what is at stake is nothing less than the outcome of a conflict between two visions: a religious state or a secular state; whether the Jews are a people or a religion; democracy versus theocracy. But the action of withdrawing from Gaza requires a reciprocal commitment to the peace process from both sides.
