Paul, with people like you its always the fault of the others. If each side is always waiting for the other side to move nothing will happen. I believe it is up to Israel to start a real and honest peace process because the long-term issue is not the survival of the Arabs but that of Israel. Reading the posts here you start to believe Israel would lose her virginity by taking serious unilateral steps to peace. Which risk is greater, starting negos that may fail (and bring you back to square one) or being at war forever? Are you really comfortable with relying on US support, not afraid it may fail you like it failed others? Do you believe you can survive CENTURIES as a thorn in your neighbours side? If Israeli politicians continue with this attempted conquest of the territories and a colonisation of the Pals then, in 150 years from now, you wont find "Israel" on any map, only orbituaries about a failed nation that had no vision and did not know its limits.
