What's in a headline?

'Israel finally agrees to give Palestinians control of border' says the Independent. 'Palestinians finally agree to meet Israeli security needs at border crossing' just wouldn't have the same ring to it, would it?

And why all the fuss about security, anyway?

'James Wolfensohn, the former chairman of the World Bank and the international envoy on post-disengagement Gaza, had expressed deep frustration in private that Israel's preoccupation with security details, while valid, threatened to prevent measures which could contribute to longer term stability and therefore security.'

So a few of your kids might get blown to pieces en route to longer term stability. What's the big deal?
