Abbas was candid in this interview, something he has should have done ages ago. The Israelis are not serious about reaching an agreement. At the peak of previous negotiations, the Olmert government attacked Gaza knowing full well that such a move would definitely put an end to the talks then Olmert stood down and the rest is history. Now Netanyahu want to do a Shamir and waste 10 more years in futile talks that lead to no where while expanding the illegal building of Jewish settlements. It is obvious that the Israeli government is only interested in playing footsie with the Obama administration while paying lip service to the so called peace process.
