Mr. Levy- are you making the assumption that peaceful actions on the part of Israel will be met by comparable peaceful actions by the Palestinians? Isn't this the crux of the problem? If Israel were to make a positive gesture towards peace, ie definitively stopping illegal settlement expansion in the West Bank, would not Israel deserve a reciprocal positive gesture of substance from the Palestinians?
