Knesset passes resolution on West Bank and Gaza

In today's Haaretz:
In a 26-8 vote ... the Knesset decided "the areas of Yesha [the West Bank and Gaza Strip] are not 'occupied territory' - neither historically, according to international law, nor according to political agreements signed by Israel."

The decision says "the Knesset decides that the right of the Jewish people to the Land of Israel is a national, historic, eternal right that cannot be questioned" and that "the Knesset strengthens the hands of the settlers in Yesha and calls on the government to continue developing the settlements."
It is absolutely ridiculous to think that there is an "opportunity" to negotiate peace between the Palestinians and the Israelis when Ariel Sharon, the prime minister, obviously has no support within his party and within his government to do so.
