    "According to article, Israel didn`t refuse negotiations or require any conditions before talking" Israel is insisting that the other side do something BEFORE Israel agrees to talk. It is insisting that the other side remove all references to refugees BEFORE Israel says wether or not it will enter into negotiations based on the Saudi plan. That is insisting on a precondition, Shen, and you are fooling yourself if you pretend otherwise. The Saudis are having none of it. They are saying that the Israelis either accept the plan IN FULL or it rejects the plan IN FULL. The Saudis are making no preconditions at all; they are saying "This is what we want to discuss; do you want to talk, or don't you?". They are not asking Israel to do anything before the negotiations. They are simply saying "This is what we want to discuss; do you want to talk, or don't you?". The Saudis know how to negotiate, and the Israelis know how to prevaricate. It really is As Simple As That.
