Pre-emptively shifting the blame of the failure of Isreal giving the Palestinians their fully legitimate state, Barak is trying to prepare the ground of a similar senario to that which took place in Camp David in 2000. Sorry Barak, if you keep offering a "retarded deformed" state whithout sovernty and its East jerusalem "The head" to the Palestinians, you will always receive the same answer until the Palestinians give up on the idea and demand their Basic Rights under the Israeli rule, which means demographic strain on Israel and a binational state. With a Palestinian majority in few years, and here it becomes that Israel has missed the "huge opportunity".
