    There's no question that Israel has taken a PR beating of late. And, there's no question that Netanyahu has not helped improve world opinion of Israel. That said, more Israeli's have died during periods of greater diplomacy than during periods of hardnosed policy. Anyone who thinks that a more diplomatic Israel would miraculously turn around negative world opinion is dreaming. There's more to it than just logic and honesty. There's a palpably non-level geopolitical playing field out there. Expecting Israel to do all the giving, and the PA to do all the taking, will not be acceptable to a democratic Israel. When the Palestinians agree that a) Israel has a right to be there; and b) that Israel has a right to exist in peace; then the way will be paved for peace making. As anyone who has studied negotiations will tell you, any deal in which one side feels like they got the shaft is likely to unravel.
