"Netanyahu`s attempt to ... forget and nullify all peace negotiations worked out between his predecessors and the Palestinians is a blatant fraud." But if only Abbas is dumb enough to fall for it (which he is not!) then perhaps he will also be dumb enough to cede settlement land to Israel! Then Israel gets a bit more of what it wants. Unfortunately for Israel, Bibi's thinking is bound up in four realities - hook or crook, the con game, money, brute force - and the myth that these are the only ways to get what you want. The other half of the reality is that this has been a losng propostition from the very start.
