You should be embarrassed and ashamed at your assertions. (I am embarrassed that you could write what you wrote). You seem to have forgotten that the (majority of the) UN had VOTED FOR ISRAEL TO BE A HOMELAND FOR THE JEWISH PEOPLE. Why should the Palestinians - in the spirit of peace - not `cast their vote` in favour, just as Israel is prepared to do the same for their State?! Bibi has brilliantly called their bluff. Israel said, ALL ALONG, that there should be no `pre-conditions`, but NO, Abbas INSISTED that the freeze be one...OK...now ISRAEL has set one and ABBAS is crying foul! Come on, Akiva, get your facts straight before you ashamedly criticize your own people and government.
