get real. to say that Israel, as the occupying power, is the only one who can make steps towards peace, and therefore is the only reason why peace is not yet established, is simply ridiculous. if palestinians want a state, they should drop their preconditions and get to the negotiating table. they dont have to accept a first offer, or any offer, but the establishment of preconditions shows that they do not want an offer, but rather want to be victims. i also think israel could do a lot more to establish peace with the palestinians, and believe that it will take a man or woman with more vision and courage than bibi to do it, but the palestinians certainly dont have to wait for that man or woman to show up.
