If he comes to the table, he'll get told no sovereignty, no independence. So what is the purpose of coming to the table? Hamas will be emboldened and what will he gain? So Israeli bodyguards when he reports back to the Palestinian people that they can have no independence and no sovereignty and no prosperity except if they move to the US or otherwise abandon their homes for foreign lands? Netanyahu already promised in his speech - No sovereignty and no independence, EVER, for Palestinians, even in Gaza. So what is the point of coming to the table? Israel already told Obama "NO WAY on any past promises to the US." Why would Israel treat the Palestinians better than the US? Nothing promised can or could be believed.
