Rabbinic human rights group T’ruah calls for transparency on donor money spent on settlements.17:48 08.10.15 | 1 comments
..a set of principles that define the parameters of a negotiation, and the negotiations themselves. "So perfect there is no need to amend it, change it or alter it in any way, simply sign on the dotted line." No, read the Saudi proposal. It is a set of broad principles which all sides entering into negotiation agree is the eventual goal. It is not a peace treaty, with all the "t"'s crossed and the "i"'s dotted. And the Saudi's are right - unless you agree to a set of principles beforehand then the negotiations will simply meander all over the place and never - ever - reach any conclusion. I mean, without such a set of principles who is going to agree that the negotiations have even *reached* a conclusion? But, hey, you guys don't really want negotiations at all, do you? Your legal position is much too weak to allow you to get to keep all that you want, so you much prefer the status quo.
