    Bibi made a gesture in Peace, to break the deadlock 10 months ago. He did this in spite of great political risk. The response was NINE months of silence from the Palestinians. Even in the tenth month, Abbas had to be dragger to the talks, kicking and screaming against his will. Sorry, the game ended, and time ran out. Abbas squandered nine precious months. WHERE IS THE ARAB GESTURE FOR PEACE ??? Why does Israel always have to offer, concede, make gestures ?? Is it remotely possible that the Palestinians really don't want peace, unless they get 100 % of their convoluted demands. If that's the case, blame lies squarely with them. How about a show of good faith from them ?? Now, it is their turn. Bet they drop the ball, like they did for the last year, last ten years, last 62 years.
