and how it surmounted that President Abbas has not signed any peace agreement with Israel. With Yossi Beilin's Geneva Accord, the Israeli Government never agreed to the terms of the Meretz politician's terms of agreement - ever. The Geneva Initiative is an organizational movement and not a governmental diplomatic policy. They never utilized it and President Abbas did support the Geneva Initiative, despite at one time over 70% of Israelis polled favoured it as well.The mere fact that no Israeli Prime Minister has persuasively endorsed Geneva highlights the fact of its rejection. In all the other negotiations, there was never a finalized agreement on both the core issues of Jerusalem or the Palestinian refugees. Having said all this, can you please tell us specifically any Israeli Government peace proposal which designates with clarity the parameters of the given core items, such as the Arab League Peace Proposal ? Think about it, why would the PA President request specifically the discussion on borders for the next 3 months of the Netanyahu-led Government ? It's because PM Netanyahu's government is committing its classic 9 months of stonewalling on all items of the Framework Agreement and then of course, the curve ball of accepting Israel as the "Jewish State" (which is fine by me) was another supplementary item. So you're really one-sided on the blaming when there's no proof in the pudding. I'm also just as disappointed that my father didn't live to see peace between Israel and the Palestinians since many of us have devoted time, great concern and effort to this conflict's resolution.
