Notice the language here. Netanyahu agrees that the Palestinians have a position. That he will admit but notice that he does not agree to discuss those Palestinian positions, just that those are the parameteres the palestinians want for discussion. Netanyahu will counter that their positions are untenable since they will threaten Israel's "security". As for Beilin's shakiness that netanyahu will do the same during these negotiations that he did with the "freeze", the track record is clear for all to see. Israel says one thing to stall their opponents and "ally" and then goes ahead on carries out its expansionism and land theft. Israel is not to be trusted here any more than it was trusted in the past. It has lied and deceived on every opportunity.
