    I quote from Avi Issacharoff (Haaretz) today: "Netanyahu must also recognize the changing reality on the Palestinian side. Until 2004, the Palestinian Authority was led by Yasser Arafat, who was perceived by the Americans and Europeans as a terrorist. Now, the Palestinian leaders are viewed in Washington and within the EU as true partners in the peace process and in the effort to create a Palestinian state. It is Israel's leaders - specifically Netanyahu, Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman, Likud Minister Benny Begin and Vice Prime Minister Moshe Ya'alon - who are far from being perceived in that way. In the past, the U.S. saw settlement construction as a "stick" used to deter Palestinian terror, but today it is viewed as an obstacle." None of what you say, C.O., detracts from the fact that Netanyahu keeps telling the Palestinians to "stop creating preconditions" at the very same time he doggedly creates very tangible preconditions (in W. Bank, E. J'lem)! Devious hypocrisy!
