The mission of every Israeli government is to avoid peace progress at all costs. The only real peace progress comes from discussing and deciding "core issues". The Palestinians have always been ready and willing to do this, but the Israelis have avoided it. In fact, the Israelis either say they will not discuss core issues or else they say that core issues will be discussed in the final stages of peace talks. Of course, these final stages never come. Not only will Israel never choose peace, they will actively sabotage it, all the while pretending that they favor peace in order to keep the freebies flowing from America. The question(s) for America are (1) Do you believe that Israel is sincere when they say they want peace? (2) Did you ever believe Israel was sincere when they said they want peace? (3) Considering your answers to (1) and (2), why are you still playing the fool for Israel?
