    Cipora is digging deeper into double standards when saying: "No country can be expected to negotiate with an entity or group that does not even accept its sovereignty" Let me first point out that Israel doesn't even recognize a Palestinian state, much less "accept its sovereignty". Double standard again. In fact, a large number of Israelis don't even recognize Palestinians as a people, much less a people with sovereignty that is officially recognized. And the clincher: Sovereignty defines land ownership and rule over that land. What are the borders of Israel? Some in Israel say everthing from Jordan to the sea. Israel has not announced any official borders upon which Israeli sovereignty can be recognized. You are asking the Pals to recognize Israeli sovereignty over an unknown area of land, possibly 100% of Palestine. Since land ownership IS a final status issue, you are requiring them to capitulate to Israeli sovereignty prior to negotiations!
