    First they agree to direct talks. This after their droning on for weeks how they long, how they are panting after peace and talking openly and frankly with the palestinians about Israel's security needs and Israel's security needs and Israel's security needs. End of the agenda, lets go home. Then the gasbag comes out and reiterates what needs to be discussed at the opening talks and it is all about Israel's security needs, then we hear rumblings from the moldovan pitbull that the settlement freeze cannot possibly be extended beyond 26/9. The we've got the well dressed French speaking Morroccan FM coming out and giving his two prutot on why the talks are doomed to failure and now we get the Foreign Ministry jumping on board (remember they are under the watchful and vicious eye of the molodvan pitbull) and saying (interesting that their complaint breaks out at this juncture, isnt it?) that they will strike. Yeh, this is a state that is really longing for peace with their neighbours. Can you hear those caterpillers gunning their engines, rumbling in the background roaring to go on 27/9?
