I would like to hear the Israeli Government speak in a specific tone about their intentions. Do they want the Israeli population embroiled in conflict with its neighbours continuously or do they want peace, which they deserve as well? People always try to read into things more than the situation really is. President Abbas represents the Palestinians, and this has been their message for the longest time. Meanwhile on the Israeli side, there's no consensus unfortunately.
