21. Cessation of violence
It's true that Sharon demanded a complete cessation of violence for a week before he would begin implementing the Tenet Plan. However, the expectation of complete security for every Israeli is obviously an exaggeration. Of course, the cessation of violent attacks is a goal. The mass bombings have to be eliminated. Attacks orchestrated by terrorist organizations have to be eliminated. Occasional criminal or individual activists unrelated to an organized group attacking an Israeli would not mean that the peace process is scuttled. This was the case with both the Egyptian and the Jordanian Peace settlements. Individuals seeking vengence did attack. Compensation was made for deaths and damages.
