    You cannot have it both ways. If you agree with a Palestinian State then even a blind fool can see that negotiations are fruitless with Israel. Netanyahu will not freeze settlements, will not start negotiations from 67 borders claiming they are indefensible yet proved defensible enough in 67. Netanyahu's position is in direct opposition to everyone elses and no matter what solution is put forth he rejects it. Israel clearly does not want peace. The only option left for the Palestinians is to break the deadlock via the UN. As Abbas has said....negotiations can happen after the UN vote....so what is your problem. Israel unilaterally builds illegal settlements and Unilaterallly annexes East Jerusalem and unilaterally blockades Gaza and unilaterally broke the ceasefire and instigated Operation Cast Lead and Unilaterally murdered nine Turks...and you have no problem with Israels unilateral decisions? Unsurprising you were sacked.

This Valentine's day, celebrate not love, but the sublime bond of friendship

Friendship is free of the indignities, suffering and drama that characterize romantic love; it doesn't have an expiration date; we rarely suspect it to be a figment of our imagination. But love is what fuels our economy.
