Granted, Netanyahu doesn't really believe there is a chance to achieve peace with Palestinians in a foreseeable future. But previous left-wing and centrist Israeli governments did believe and did try to negotiate. And what do they have to show for it? Exactly as Netanyahu's right-wing government - absolutely nothing. All the "peace activists" here who urge Israelis to replace current right-wing government, what do you suppose will change? Israelis do indeed replace their governments regularly, and inevitably a left-wing government will come to power again. And then you will see that in terms of results achieved at negotiations absolutely NOTHING will change. The gap between sides, as it currently stands, is simply irreconcilable. Palestinian government will not be able to sell to Arab public any agreement which is not viewed as a step to "freeing all of Palestine". And even a very left-wing Israeli government would never accept such agreement.
