    Roll your tongue around that number 91%. Settlement blocs aren't in the way of peace. What's in the way of peace is acceptance by the arabs of a jewish state with safe and secure borders. 91% of land captured in the 67 war has been given away in the name of peace. Land for peace is a wonderful one way street, whatever happened to peace for peace? Do the arabs want peace? In just about any type of negotiation, be it in politics or business, when you get 91% of what you want in return for nothing, I'd say you got the sweeter part of that negotiation. You apparently don't. On top of that Israel is prepared to concede some of the 9% that's left and you're piqued that she isn't prepared to give all 9%. 91% given and you have the audacity to say Israel doesn't want peace. What have the arabs have done to promote peace,what deal have they offered that we should accept, what deal have they offered period, other than go back to square one and pretend they never attacked us.
