    The distortions have been laid bare. The conditions for getting the Palestinians to the table are clear. Does Netanyahu want to negotiate or just moan and groan? Netanyahu said he wants to work to renew negotiations. Everything is now up to him. he has to put up. What is he willing to give up to get what he wants to keep? Vague "substantial concessions" won't do. He has to be specific and he has to tell the Israeli people first. It should be clear that secret deals are not going to make it. The Israeli people and the Palestinian people both have a right to know. Anybody who heard or saw the speech before AIPAC should realize that even AIPAC has accepted the realities. And no amount of Eric Cantor nay-saying is going to change those realities.
