On average, Israelis want land more than they want peace. They are the victors, why should they the spoils to the victims? While that's true there cannot be peace unless the Pals give up and die. The USA cannot get honest negotiations started with the current Israeli government -- they cannot possibly agree to any deal the Palestinians would accept. But if the USA puts on enough pressure that the Israeli government falls, likely a worse government would replace them. Unless Israeli public opinion changes there can be no peace. And Israelis who want peace are likely to leave Israel, while Jews who want land are likely to immigrate. So no peace. More on next rock.
