    Every time Israeli leaders has extended his hand in peace the Palestinians have made them look like fools by their refusal to truly recognize Israel. When are the diplomats going to understand that sometimes people say what they mean and mean what they say? The Palestinians will never give up the right of return to Israel nor will they ever recognize Israel as a Jewish State. It's long past time that the Israeli government tell the Palestinians either accept Israel as a Jewish nation and give up the right of return or else you can go screw yourselves. Period.
