Johnboy, don't you know that suggesting that Israel obey international law makes you a virulent anti-Israeli propagandist in the eyes of the Israeli right wing? I fear that the more I read of these talkbacks the more convinced I become that Israel cannot have peace - perhaps does not deserve peace - until it faces up to its own fanatics. Of course the Palestinians not merely aren't facing up to theirs, but are even electing them to power - but then since Israel created Hamas they can hardly object to that! And it's hard not to sympathise with those on both sides who won't tackle their own fanatics until they see some evidence that the ones on the other side will be faced down. Question: are the Saudis saying "accept the initiative as a starting point, perhaps with some reservations, and come and negotiate" - which seems reasonable - or "accept the proposal before negotiating" - which is nonsense? It's not clear to me.
