    M: "Delaying the whole thing, keeping the whole region in a state of uproar and unease has been the tactic of the Arab League/Palestinians." And to what benefit? ISRAEL gains because they claim Res 242 says: IF a final settlement is never reached THEN they can occupy indefinitely. So their vested interest is to prevaricate, because that brings no cost upon them: The Pals either give up and accede to all Israeli demands OR Israel just keeps bleeding the land dry; using the water HERE, expropriating a bit of land THERE, etc. No such luxury for the Arabs nor the Pals; this conflict feeds Iranian influence (weakening the arab nations) and the Pals stay under the boot of the Israelis. THEY want this ended, but the end product must be a viable state, or it won't have ended at all. Israel refuses, because it doesn't CARE wether that state is viable; it only cares about getting what it wants from it. Simple, pure, Israeli selfishness.
