Israel Has Had OBVIOUS Opportunities To Make Peace-- And...HAS NOT. And, CONTINUES NOT...to do so! MOST RECENTLY With Abbas (Two (2) Times So Far)-- 1. When Abbas was elected President, Israel & America had the opportunity to really work with Abbas...so that he could deliver to the Palestinian people what they deserve...& also as a result...diminish support for Hamas. They chose to play games with/sabotage him...instead. Result: Hamas was empowered & elected. ...Palestinians saw that their delivering the MODERATE, Non-Terrorism Supporter...ONLY got them broken promises, no State, no Peace...NO RESULTS! 2. Abbas shed (separated himself from) Hamas...& what did he get? Nothing! BUT: !! Pals SUPPORT your Moderates--REGARDLESS. ...THEY are your Answer. !! Abbas/The Moderates-- Deserved/DESERVE...a SERIOUS peace deal/Serious RESULTS! WE/Israel...Are The PROBLEM (Now)! And: It's OBVIOUS! We/The WORLD-- CAN'T allow this to continue!!!
