No more BS. Abbas is demanding something reasonable. Put yourself in his shoes. He has done most of his part of the Road Map. The PA coordinates in security and counter-terrorism with Israel. Now Israel needs to stop contradicting its manifest statement that it is in favor of peace via the establishment of a demilitarized, peaceful, Palestinian state aongside Israel in roughly the 1967 borders, with Israel annexing major settlement blocks in exchange for a land swap in the southern West Bank. The plan is there, everybody who seeks peace is in consensus about it. Now go, be honest, and do it. Otherwise say you don't want peace, and to hell with it all. But stop the BS and the stalling just as Abbas has stopped the BS and the stalling. His condition is rational, sound, and understandable, just as Israeli security and counter-terrorism conditions are. Ya'alla ! Just do it, Bibi. Iran will loose lots of clout, and it will weaken Hezbollah and Hamas politically, if not militarily yet. It's high time.
