Safire in the NYT

Do you read Safire? Or do you throw away the baby (Safire) with the dirty water (the NYT)? I would rather read Safire,who has a good mind (and who personally knows Sharon). Today's subject is critical:Is a Palestinian civil war the first station on the famous road?

This is the key theme:

"Colin Powell and assorted outsiders can unfold road maps and issue timetables to their heart's content, but progress toward peace with security will be made only when Abbas's government, representing the silent Palestinian majority, wins that civil war — or at least, in Ariel Sharon's first concession, demonstrates "a 100 percent effort" to win it".

Very readable.
