    So instead of pulling back to the Green Line as he's been told to by every ally, institution and court, Netanyahu is instead pushing for 40% of Palestine. And he wants to keep E J'sem too. 40% is a complete joke, there'd be nothing left of Palestine but a cluster of isolated bantustans. And this when Israel has no legal claim or right to one dunam of the land! That rules out any talks at all and puts the ball squarely in the hands of the international community. Let's see what Obama, the EU and UN think of this latest example of Israeli 'co-operation' and 'generosity'. Netanyahu is a complete kleptomaniac. And he has the gall to lie glibly to the camera and claim Israel has no preconditions! Each time one thinks Israel's reputation surely can't sink any lower, the GOI proves us wrong.
