    If this speech is meant to urge on Netanyahu a different approach to the peace negotiations, Perez could have spared himself the effort. He says: "The peace process is today crucial for our neighbors, and not just us." Is he talking on behalf of his neighbors? And since when was Netanyahu concerned about what is crucial for his neighbors. "A true compromise, as painful as it may be, is preferable to the dangers that would be created in its absence." Fine words, but they do not include “construction freeze.” The Palestinian suspicion that a right-wing Israeli government would refuse to recognize a two-state solution has been proven unwarranted, he says. How so? Has Netanyahu looked at the Palestinian proposals? Has he agreed to discuss the border issue? What is a two-state solution without agreed borders? "Negotiations is a process by which every side tries to get the most, and as it continues, both sides understand that they must reach an end-position of action." So the settlement freeze and the borders must wait till the end. Mr. Perez: You are still inside the US initiative box, but the rest of the world has left that behind. If you do not catch up, you will soon be looking at a single state.
