    You cannot convince the world something that is not true. More than a million Haredim and Settlers - constituting well over 20% of the Israeli population - is not interested in ending land grab (for whatever biblical, historic and economic reasons). And this 20% is in power (and just operated two wars). So how can you possibly convince anyone otherwise?! Israelis, when they think of themselves, leave out the 20% who call the shots. What would you say if Abbas went around asking the world to ignore the existence of Hamas & Islameec Jeehad?
