    Bibi using such words prior to the negotiations and instead of providing good gestures is not a good start. Neither direct nor distance negotiations will lead to anything if those core issues are not to be dealt with; Bibi knows this very well. I think its a political victory for him to start this negotiations so that he shows that his government wanted peace and Palestinians are just avoiding his generosity to sit with him face to face! I am confident negotiations with Bibi will lead to nothing but wasting time when he says "Israel is our eternal capital" and "Legalizing.illegal settlements..." etc. Also by having extremist lefties in his government, peace is just impossible as he said. Whats interesting among all this, is Barack! I don't know why he's still not leading the government in Israel because he seems to be the only one among all to realize whats needed in region; I think He's moderate and aspires for a true peace. The US shall restructure the political arrangements of the Israeli government by supporting Barack to take a lead and kick Bibi - Liberman out.
