because they know that this conference is doomed to fail. how can it succeed given the arab double standard. its everywhere, assad is talking about peace and making deals with iran and north korea, abbas has written papers and given speeches justifying war on israel and now he wants concessions. he should lock himself up in the basement to prevent his fellow haniya from shooting him in the back. unfortunately there will not be peace until palestinians simply take it or leave it when it comes to these deals because this is as good as it gets. i'm not trying to be for israel or agains palis but instead i'm simply realistic.
